COVID 19 UPDATES
The Church Council has decided to update the mask regulation weekly, based on the Friday update from CovidActNow, which uses CDC guidelines and data to provide up-to-date information about the status of Covid by county. The results will be emailed with the ZOOM link and bulletin on Fridays. The signs on the doors will show whether masks are required or optional. RED means masks are required. GREEN means masks are optional. Here’s the website link if you’d like to check it out:

How to navigate Zoom while sheltering in place even if you don’t have a computer or a Smart phone:
Zoom is a handy program that helps us to be together (virtually, that is), in real time. The program allows us to see each other and to participate in Bible Study.
You don’t have to download anything to your computer, tablet or Smart phone. Just click on the link the church office sends via email, or copy and paste this link into your browser (the address line on your internet page):
The link includes the Meeting ID
However, if you don’t have access to a computer, you can always call in just before Bible Study begins. You won’t be able to see us, and we won’t be able to see you, but we’ll see your phone number and know you’re connected. You can interact with everyone else who is logged into the Bible Study, and you can hear the Bible Study in real time.
All you need to do is to call 1 301-715-8592, wait for the prompt, and enter this
Meeting ID: 821 8649 9965
These numbers and links will work every single week for as long as we continue to hold Bible Study this way.
Ways to keep “being the Church,”
even when we can’t be in the church building, or can only be here on a limited basis:
Pray often, the power of prayer is great. Pray for your church family. Send notes. Make phone calls. All the things that we do for shut-ins, do for each other. We are one body.
Attend in person service, if you are comfortable doing so. We have worship at 10 am. At this point, masks are optional. We do have masks available at the church if you want one and don't have any.
Attend live-streamed Sunday Worship Service. Obtain the "Zoom link" from from Church emails or click the Sunday Service Link to the right, to join weekly Sunday Worship live streamed services, 10am every Sunday. All are welcome. Zoom allows comments that can be shared in actual time, as well as voice/picture for us to chat together.
