Sabbath Announcements

November 21, 2020

WELCOME: “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good…”. We are most thankful when we receive a gift or when we are protected from certain danger. This year, we have received both. You might be celebrating this thanksgiving a little differently from others. And, however you celebrate, please take the time to reflect on all the blessings you have received during this pandemic. Yes, God is certainly good, and “… His mercy endures forever”.

FLOWERS FOR THE PULPIT: If you would like to provide pulpit live flowers for the church sanctuary on Sabbath to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or a special achievement, simply contact the church office to make arrangements. Currently, all the dates for the remainder of the year are full. Thank you for your faithfulness!

SABBATH SCHOOL MATERIALS:  We are currently awaiting the arrival of the rest of materials for next quarter. We are holding off on issuing quarterlies until we have those. Thank you for your patience!

SABBATH SCHOOL:  We are also anxious to reopen safely our Sabbath School.  Ideas are currently being explored.  More information will be coming. Kindergarten is currently hosting sabbath online via Zoom. Please contact Jamie Herr for details.   

CHURCH COMMUNICATIONS:  We are introducing a new communications system called Flocknote to combat isolation.  Please send the unique text EPSDA7 to the # 84576, to be kept updated on what’s happening in our church.  You will receive a link to complete registration.  Thanks.
