November 1st is our annual celebration of all of God's people who have run their race in faith, and now rest from their labors. This year, in addition to memorializing the members of our congregation and families who have joined the Church Triumphant, we'd like to have an opportunity to recognize others who have died in faith, who have given us an example of Jesus to follow. Click here for an opportunity to submit a digital photo and basic information about a person you would like remembered for this celebration.
The Board of Stewardship would like to thank the congregation for once again displaying incredible generosity during our recent Fall paper product drive. We donated $81 in checks and cash, $150 Dollar Tree gift cards, and approximately 4 boxes of paper cups, 13 packages of napkins, 48 boxes of tissues, 78 rolls of paper towels, and 257 rolls of toilet paper to the Frankfort Township Food Pantry. Unbelievable!!
With the change in weather we have decided that our Sunday Worship services will no longer meet outdoors. Please join us this Sunday, October 25th in the indoor sanctuary at 9:00 am. Face masks are required and social distancing procedures are in place for your safety. Sunday services will return to being live streamed as well if you are not comfortable being in attendance.
- Hosted on Wednesdays from 3-5pm
- Limited Number of Guests per Time Slot (Each person must register individually)
- Space is limited to maintain social distance
- Attendees must wear a face mask that covers their mouth and nose
- No congregating within the lobby space before or after the service.
- Each service lasts approximately 15-20mins (Upon service completion exit space promptly)
We are excited to announce that we will begin to host communion in the sanctuary following the end of Worship services on the following dates:
Please Note: There will be no October Sunday Communion Services because we are planning to be outdoors for the month's remainder.
