This Week’s Faith Talk Question/Prompt:
Do you know someone who would like the service and/or sermon mailed to them? Do you know someone that would like to be added to our email list? Please let Pr. Chrisy know.
Pr. Chrisy is typically available by phone, text, email, Facebook messenger, Zoom, Skype, and occasionally Hogwarts Owl or the Force if you need to reach her. Mondays are her typical day off.
Offerings: Thank you very much to all of you who have been able to mail in your offering. We know times are uncertain, but we also know that many of you still want to give an offering to the church. Please mail your offering to 25 Kirche in the Woods, Spruce, MI 48762. A note that offerings are most often counted on the last Sunday of the month at this point.
In Person Worship and Activities Reengagement: We do not have a return date to give you at this time. In our most recent council meeting, it was decided to continue livestreaming for the time being and revisit the issue of in person activities in October. We will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC, the State of Michigan, the District Health Depart #2, Church Mutual Insurance, and other local officials to ensure that when we return to in person activities, we can all do so safely. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience, virtual participation, support, and prayers. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to any church council or staff member.
