THE MITTEN TREE
Thank you to everyone who donated items for
our Mitten Tree. Linda Avallone was able to deliver
14 pairs of children and 22 pairs of adult gloves and
mittens to Family Service League because of your
generosity!
2015 OFFERING ENVELOPES
 The 2015 Offering Envelopes are now available on
the table in the hallway. If you don’t see a set and
would like one, please call the church office. If you
give electronically, you don’t need a set, as it ers self-improvement programs and United Methodist Voluntary Services community advocacy projects. Your gifts on Human Relations Day will support an outreach program of Theressa Hoover United Methodist Church in Little Rock, Ark. The church sponsors a residential and out-patient program for men and women with addictions. Graduates of the program participate in an eight-week course that provides training for unemployed or underemployed people. The offering also supports Exodus House, a ministry in Oklahoma that helps former prisoners to receive the emotional, spiritual and physical support they need to make it on their own. Please give generously on Human Relations Day. Thank you!



The Joy of Music

Our very own church band, Leap of Faith, has CD’s available.  Suggested donation is $10.  It truly is a joy to hear!  See Ron DiCesare, Christine Jordan, or Philip Jordan to pick up one.

WAYS TO STAY TOGETHER IN THIS TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING
It’s a different world now as this issue of The Focus, is being published. As we began Lent last
month, we were preparing all the ways (we thought) to observe Lent and prepare for Easter.
Now, we must do this together...but apart. Yes, in order to protect everyone, we must stay
physically apart, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t connect with each other and our neighbors.
In our technological world, we have ways to stay together: phone, email, online, waving to each
other as we come outside for a breath of fresh air. This time of staying apart truly shows us that
“The Church” is not a building.

WAYS TO STAY TOGETHER IN THIS TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING 

It is now July, and we’re still in the midst of social distancing...to protect everyone. Being six feet apart and wearing masks protects so many vulnerable people. I know it’s hard but it not only protects those you come in contact with, but the people you love and the people they love; the people who are out there on the front lines: the healthcare workers, the grocery store employees, the fireman, the police, the people who are doing all the cleaning and disinfecting, and so many others we don’t even know. Let’s all be the caregivers for one another, just like a mom...remember, that the six foot distance and the mask you wear today, is saving someone else tomorrow!

Here are the guidelines for the in-person worship below.  Please remember to wear a mask, and socially distance from each other of at least 6 feet (those living in the same household may sit together, but need to be at least 6 feet from everyone else).

*******************************************

Following the CDC and Conference Guidelines, if you feel sick, please stay home. If you have come into contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 over the previous 14 days, please stay home. If you are ages 65+ and/or have any underlying conditions, or live with anyone that falls into these categories, we ask that you strongly consider staying home.

 

Like previous times, there are several precautions that ALL people attending need to follow in order for worship to take place:

 

  • Limit of 45 people in the Sanctuary (we do have some overflow space in Wesley Hall) - Masks must be worn at all times by everyone 2 years old and up (except for worship leadership)
    • Once you arrive, everyone MUST check in with an usher for instructions and attendance purposes (contact tracing)
      • Social Distancing (minimum 6') is required at all times
        • All children must stay with their parents/adults at all times
          • There will be no Sunday School or Children's time at this service
            • Offering Stations will be available (no passing of offering plates)
              • No congregational singing
                • No Passing of the Peace
                  • No fellowship hour or social gathering time at any time

 

 

These guidelines MUST be strictly followed by everyone. Worship will be dismissed if even one person refuses to comply with our guidelines. Please remember these precautions are for the safety of everyone present and those you may contact following the worship service.

 

Even with all of these differences in our service, we still envision a wonderful time of worship and celebration. For anyone not able to attend, we will be recording and posting to our online platforms later on Sunday morning/early afternoon.

 

Please contact Pastor Roy (pastorroy67@gmail.com or 914-330-1789) for any needs or concerns.
