From the Kitchen Table Remember you can always watch the video later if you aren't able to catch it live.  No need to have Facebook to watch them, links are added to this page.

Church News and Notes:

Ad Council met Monday night and made the decision that we would not meet in-person for worship through the month of January. So we are looking at potentially February to meet again for in-person worship.  Our COVID cases are currently skyrocketing in Buchanan County.  (To stay updated on the active COVID cases in our county: click here.)

Funerals are limited to family ONLY.  Everyone MUST wear a mask.  Funerals will be live streamed so that you would be able to watch from home.  

Pastor Paul explains this decision in Tuesday's "From the Kitchen Table" episode.

Video to the November 15th Sunday service 
Here is the video to the service from last Sunday if you haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

Bulletin for November 22nd: Here is a link to the bulletin for this coming Sunday. 

Phone Tree   Page 1, Page 2, Page 3  A new, updated phone tree is in the works.  It will be mailed to you.

Prayer Requests are added to our website throughout the week.

Office Closed The office will be closed next Thursday, November 26th for Thanksgiving. Normal hours the rest of the week. 

Mask Update  Due to the new COVID restrictions, we ask that you wear a mask if you come to the church, office, or stop by to see Pastor Paul.  Thank you for your understanding.

Angel Tree
We will be once again donating gifts to children in need in Buchanan County.  We have 65 Angel Cards for children in need.  The north door will be unlocked Monday-Friday 8:30am-6:30pm so you can pick out your angel card / return the wrapped gifts with the angel card taped to the gift.
The Angel Tree will be put up tomorrow, Thursday, November 19th.

Children's Christmas Program Update

Thank you to everyone who has been mailing in their pledge!
