New Year, New Approach

For the next two months, worship will be by Zoom at 10:30 and immediately be followed by our fellowship time.

Once you enter the Zoom room you will be muted. The pastor and liturgist will be unmuted during worship. We will use pre-recorded music during the service. We will take Joys and Concerns during this worship time. You will need to either wave your hands to get attention or use the "wave" button found at the lower bottom of the screen called "Reactions" in order to be unmuted. 

You may also use the chat function in Zoom where you can write messages to everyone or to an individual person.

There will be a recording of the service (The prayers, scriptures, music, and sermon) posted to Pastor Curtis' You Tube channel after the service.
