UMW goes “NUTS” during Covid-19

Sales raise funds for UMW missions projects

Here’s a tasty help for gift-giving: Beginning Nov. 15 (hopefully), you can purchase pecans after the Sunday worship service. There will be a way to do that while following all Covid-19 guidelines. All items are $11. Your choices are the same as last year and include: pecan halved, medium pieces, and small pieces; chocolate, dark chocolate, cinnamon, chocolate clusters and glazed. Let Flora know ahead of time what you want, and she’ll bag your order for you.

Some of us use a lot of pecans in baking. If you do, too, you might enjoy taking a look at these Southern Kitchen favorite recipes.

Sonshine Class Will NOT Meet Until Further Notice

Until it’s safer to do so, the Sonshine Class has decided it will NOT meet on Sunday mornings. We are very concerned about the health and safety of our members, many of whom are at risk re Covid-19. We will let you know ASAP when we can meet again. Meanwhile, let’s all wear our masks, pray for health care workers, etc.

New Page for our COVID-19 Updates

We now have a web page on which we will post items related to the coronavirus, our church, and our neighborhoods.  Here’s where to find the new page: Covid-19 Updates.

Many groups and individuals are working hard to prepare our church building for when we can again worship in our sanctuary.  Please continue to support them with your prayers and encouragement.

Where to Find Our Online Worship

We still do not know when we will be permitted to return to our sanctuary for Sunday worship, due to the coronavirus restrictions.  Meanwhile, we will continue to offer online worship experiences.  You can find them on this site on our Worship Highlights page or link to them via Facebook  or
