Council Meeting Highlights
In-Person worship in the sanctuary will begin again THIS SUNDAY MARCH 21st!    We will continue to offer Drive-In and Online worship as well. 

If you plan to attend inside you must:
  • Assess your health before coming (do you have a fever, symptoms of COVID)
  • Be able to answer questions on your health/COVID exposure as you enter
  • Wear a mask  (new evidence is encouraging double masking)
  • Maintain 6ft physical distancing from others at all times (except members of your household)
Please make the best decision for your health and the health of others when deciding how you will worship with the Body of Christ each Sunday.  (Scroll down to see our worship services during Holy Week)

COVID Vaccination Help
There are several places doing COVID vaccines recently.  We know some folks may need assistance getting signed up online or need a ride to get a vaccine. If that's you or someone you know in the church or community  Brian and Laura Lipinski have volunteered to try to help you.  You can contact them at 540-828-6820.

We received notice that Dayton Days is being scheduled for Saturday, October 2.  We have until April 30 to confirm our intent.  This is a huge undertaking and lots of help is needed.
Please give Jan Rhodes (540-578-3803) your feedback on whether or not we should participate.     

Come bring your thoughts, questions, and experience as we have some discussion on Unanswered prayer.     Thursday @ 6:30pm  on Zoom (over the phone or online).
If you need a walkthrough of how to join the call contact Pastor Sarah!

Each Lent we ask folks to collect their loose change to give to the Society of St. Andrew which works to fight hunger.    If you've been saving your loose change or would like to donate to SoSA we will be collecting donations the week after Easter (April 11)

Last Friday Mar 12 we served a meal to about 40 people at Open Doors.   Left over soup was given to some of our church members.   Thanks for all who helped support this great mission!
Don't Forget the Building Fund
in Your Giving
      When our Council met recently we discussed our budget and are able to give praise to God that financially our church is doing well.  This is due in large part to many of you who have continued to give faithfully to the ministry of our church.  Your giving has enabled us to support our church staff, to adapt to our new circumstances,  to keep doing God's work (both locally and through the denominational groups supported by our apportionments like UMCOR which does disaster relief), and will help us plan for future ministry!  
       We would also ask that in your giving you remember the Building Fund.  We have a wonderful facility which our trustees and council continue to work hard to care for. And one day soon we hope to give our building some more use than it's been getting!    In the meantime, we have some larger projects coming up for repair and upkeep of the facility that will not be cheap  (first coming up on our list will be to repair the ceiling in the sanctuary where the popcorn ceiling is falling down).  If you're able to give a little to the Building Fund it would greatly help with these upcoming projects.   Just put "Building Fund" in the memo line on your check OR select "Building Fund" in the drop down menu when you give online (Click Here to Give Online).   
If you have any questions  please contact Pastor Sarah (540-209-7409) or Council Chair Grant Martin (540-560-4166)
