It is with an abundance of caution and great sadness that Church Council is canceling worship services, Children’s Time, SNL and all Sunday activities, all church activities and all meetings being held in the church. Church Council will re-evaluate situations and we will announce when services and events are running again. All events listed are subject to change depending on how long we are not allowed to return to church.
Any additional event postponements and cancellations will be announced as we get more information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!
EVENT POSTPONEMENTS & CANCELLATIONS
EASTER SUNDAY WORSHIP & EVENTS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
BRUNCH & BELLS – HANDBELL SUNDAY: A message from our handbell choir The GOD SQUAD – “We were very sad to not be able to ring on March 15th. We are hoping to ring our music as soon as we are back to church. We will update you as soon as we know more. Thank you for your compassion and understanding.”
EASTER EGG HUNT: POSTPONED – The egg hunt has been postponed until we return to church. We are hopeful to have the egg hunt sometime in May (2020). If you have filled eggs to return, just hold on to them for the time being. We will update you when you are able to drop them off to the church. Currently the church is still closed until further notice. Since we have filled eggs, we will be trying to have the hunt once conditions are safe and sound enough for us to reopen. Thank you for understanding!! Any further questions, please contact Barb Stein at 570-449-6533.
EASTER SUNDAY: POSTPONED – Easter is on Hold! It looks like we won’t be in church on Easter Sunday, April 12th. So we will plan to have Easter on the Sunday we return to church. Further updates and details regarding this will be emailed once we have more information.
