We continue to move forward in various ministries even as we keep an eye on everyone’s safety. We certainly enjoy seeing some (masked) faces in worship and seeing and hearing the comments from those worshiping on Facebook Live. We continue working to smooth out the hybrid worship experience for everyone – in the building and at home.

We restarted Sharing Ministry this past Sunday by helping a handful of folks. As always, our ministries roll forward with adjustments and careful planning. Our new appointment system (by calling the church) ensures a minimum of contact as we serve our community.

Our “Unshakable” Bible study, led by Diana Botner, has begun. To join “Unshakable” email Jamie Jordan at .

Children’s Ministry updates from Sequoia:

Children Break Time!!!! I would love to schedule a time to visit children and their families in safe, socially distant ways — like chalk in the driveway or eating in lawn chairs. You can view available times, and sign up for one here, https://bit.ly/3c6VfxC, I can’t wait to catch up on what’s been happening with you all!

UpTown Children Ministry is starting a new video-based lesson going through the book of Philippians, answering the questions; Where Does Joy Come From? With everything we are going through it can be hard to find joy right now, but I promise you it is there!

We will meet every Wednesday morning 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. This is for all ages and don’t worry if you can’t make it today or another day, you can jump in and out of this series as your schedule allows. Don’t forget your bibles. See you then!!
