"Walk as children of the Light...finding out what is acceptable to the Lord." Ephesians 5:8-10
We are excited to worship together! We are excited to be together again after a long absence, but we are also mindful of how much we need to act circumspectly in wisdom and in love in the upcoming weeks and months. As we gather to worship on Sundays at 10:30am, you may notice the many changes and many signs directing you to do things differently. Here are a few things to expect: ~ Masks are encouraged as per the state mandate. ~ 6 ft social distance is strongly encouraged. ~ Pews have been roped off to allow social distance to be maintained, and families will be encouraged to sit together. ~ Greeting with a wave and a smile is encouraged over handshakes and hugs. (This will be a challenge for those of us who are used to being "huggers", but we know that we love each other even without the bear hug.). ~ Tithes and offerings may be left in a box in the lobby as the "offering plate" will not be passed at this time. Givers are encouraged to write out checks and envelopes ahead of time. Pens and envelopes will be available; the pen will be yours upon use. :) ~ Dismissal may be by pew. ~ After service visiting will be moved to outside in the parking lot. ~ If anyone is feeling sick, they are encouraged to remain at home.
Online ministry will continue as well. Pastor Ryan and Pastor Annie continue to post messages, lessons, and devotions that may be accessible throughout the week. Pastor Annie will also be meeting online with students throughout the next few months for devotions and discussion. Please let us know if we can pray for or with you or if there is any other way we may serve you during this time. We love and miss you and want God's best for you!
News and updates:
eKids is making a comeback! We are excited to offer eKids class during our morning worship services beginning Sunday, September 20th. We will acknowledge those who are graduating into the next class during the worship service and then excuse our class to celebrate those students. Following Sundays, eKids will continue to meet outside during the usual time. Wee Church (ages 3-gr.1) will not be meeting yet.
Keep an eye out on the Boscobel Assembly of God Family Tree facebook group page for cancellations and changes to service times or talk to Pastor Ryan to be added to the phone tree if you are not already included.
