We hope to see many familiar faces at Barnes Preserve this Sunday, Aug. 16. Activity times begin at 10am & 2pm, and you can still reserve a time slot by clicking here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080b4ca4a62dabfe3-rally If you just want to come and walk the trail (which is paved and flat), that's fine, too! Snacks and water will be provided. Masks are required for the activity portion, and are recommended in general in case you want to stop and say a few words if you see someone on the trail.
I will be out of the office on Monday, Aug. 17. With the start of school in Orrville on Tuesday, office hours will change slightly (until all the kids get sent back home to quarantine--ha!). Adjusted office hours will be Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., with lunch from noon-1:00. As always, feel free to leave messages or emails, and I will get back to you ASAP. If you haven't already downloaded the Instant Church Directory app on your phone, I highly recommend it! It has come in very handy during this time. If you have any questions about this app, give me a call!
Please fill out the "Coffee Hour Catch-Up" form that came in the August newsletter and mail it back to me! I have received a few forms, but would love for everyone to let us know how you are doing. It will be nice to sit down with the next newsletter and read how the summer was for our friends and family at Christ Church.
Looking ahead to Sunday, August 23: Pastor Mike will be leading a Bible study out in our green space, starting at 9:00 a.m. All are invited. Bring a lawn chair, your Bible, and a mask. We will be delving into the book of Mark. At 11:30, we will hold another Zoom Fellowship Time. This is a chance to hop on your device and see smiling faces (and some furry family members)! I will send a link for that event at the end of next week.
Please pray for teachers, faculty members, students, and parents as school starts back, either in-person, or remotely.
I miss your face! Elizabeth
