UPDATE FROM THE
RE-GATHERING TASK FORCE
Dear Friends, 
 
We have a re-gathering task force working on steps toward gathering in person once again for worship and the celebration of God's love.
 
Many thanks to the 40+ people who completed the recent survey intended to gather information that will provide guidance to the task force. It’s not too late to respond by clicking this link: 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BZNF3PL. The task force will also be contacting folks who have not been able to respond on-line.
 
Encouraged by responses so far, we have decided to offer our first group gathering, outdoors. On Saturday evening, June 20, at 7:00 P.M. we will hold an Evening Vespers service on our church campus. We will follow health guidelines with physical distancing, requiring masks and doing temperature checks as you arrive. Pastor Curran will lead the 30 minute service that will include an instrumental music offering and time for prayer and reflection. If you plan to participate, please register with
Janice Mattison so that we can safely accommodate everyone.
 
Many of you have expressed interest in small group activities including gardening projects on our church campus, nature walks with the Earth Care Committee, book groups, and social action projects.  We welcome volunteers to organize any of these. Please contact anyone on the task force with your questions and your offers to help.
