Friends it is with a heavy heart, an abundance of caution, consultation with colleagues, and with Church Council that we have chosen to cancel ALL church events for the rest of May. This includes Council this Thursday, Sunday worship, the potluck etc. We will reevaluate the situation in June. 
In the meantime we will stream sermons Sundays on our church Facebook page and offer a time for worship and meditation online.
Please continue to pray for our world, country, and community as we all try to discern how to respond to this pandemic.  
Remember that "this to shall pass."
