Welcome to all visitors.  You are invited to stand during the service and introduce yourself, or to have someone else introduce you.  We want to give you one of our welcome packs and therefore encourage you to fill out the card and tear off the badge, write your name on it and wear it so that we can greet you during and after the service. Please note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back parking lot through the double doors. Also the church has a wheelchair located in the back of the sanctuary for anyone who wishes to assist a person coming to a meeting. Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing. LARGE PRINT HYMN BOOKS ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE USHERS.

Thanks and much appreciation from Barbara Gabbidon to the church family for their love, caring and prayers throughout her recent illness. May God bless you.

The worship service can be seen and heard remotely in room 11 of the Pre School for those caring for small children who are having a hard time settling. We hope you can rejoin the service once your child is able to!
