Do no harm, do good, stay in love with God.

We continue to ask that people sanitize their hands when they arrive. You  also need to sign in when you arrive.

  1. We need to maintain social distancing apart from those we don’t come to church with. So, no handshakes or hugs.  Elbow bumps and such are totally okay 😊
  1. The following are the mask updates:
    1. Wear a mask  in & during church as of August 1, 2021.
    2. Please respect any request you have to mask back up; we don’t know everyone’s health history and who might be at high risk and we need to make sure we help everyone feel safe and be safe!
  1. Starting in June, 2021, we begin having fellowship time after church. We will need to have people hand out food and drinks masked and wearing gloves (as you might see at a restaurant).  But we can once more sit down for a treat with our church family.
  1. All these are subject to change if advised by the DeKalb County Health Department.

           6.   As of June 20, 2021 we are allowed to sing in church again!

If you have questions or concerns, please talk to Pastor Jeremiah, Tom Plote,
or Mary Lynn McArtor.
