Let us Pray:

O God, you have promised through your Son to be with your church forever. We give you thanks for those who founded this community of believers and for the signs of your presence in our congregation. Today especially, as we dedicate these candlesticks given in love by the Morrow and Van Sickle families, in loving memory of our own beloved Pastor John, whose light shone among us for 16 years. Increase in us the spirit of faith and love, and make our fellowship an example to all believers. We pray through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Effective immediately, capacity limits have been lifted for churches.   Registration is no longer required for any of our services, seating charts are no longer needed, all of our pews are open, and entry and exit from the church will be through the main wooden doors.

Greeters and ushers will once again be at the back of the church: in the main doors and in the Narthex.  However,  offering plates will continue to be left in the Narthex, and communion will be picked up from tables at the back of the sanctuary.
