In-Person Worship for Summer—9 a.m.

  • No need to reserve a spot—just come to church!

  • If you have been vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask or maintain social distance.

  • If not fully vaccinated, you are encouraged to mask and maintain social distance.

  • Do not be shy about letting people know that you would prefer they keep their distance still. That is OK! The ushers can also set up chairs in the narthex if needed.

  • If you do not feel well for any reason, please stay home and join in worship on Facebook.

  • We will be singing and praising the Lord together. All those up front leading worship by singing are vaccinated.

  • We will not pass the offering plate yet. Offering plates are at the sanctuary doors, so you can drop your offering off as you come in or go out.

  • Communion, usually on the first Sunday of the month, will continue to be in the pew using the individually packaged juice and wafer.

  • There will be coffee in the Gathering Area. The nursery will be open starting this Sunday, August 1, 2021.

  • The front doors will be unlocked when staff is in the office. Office hours may continue to bit a bit irregular. Please call ahead to be sure someone is there to open the door for you during the week.

  • Work continues on the alley behind the church, but 7th Street, K Avenue, and the parking lot are all available.

  • The service will still be livestreamed on Facebook and will be available on the Live tab and later on YouTube for viewing anytime.

Postponement of General Conference Explained

Here is a link from Pastor Mike to an article written by Bishop David Bard, Interim Bishop, Minnesota Conference that more fully explains the decision of postponing the General Conference until 2022.

Giving Back to God

Since we are not passing the offering plate, we encourage you to continue to remember your church financially during this time. Offerings can be mailed to 1036 7th Street, Nevada, IA 50201 or dropped in the mail box by the staff entrance on the north side of the building (the door that faces the public library.).

This might also be a time to consider electronic direct giving. Automatic Debit Forms are available from the office or click this form. Or, if you do online banking, you can set up your own one-time or recurring offering. Even after we resume services, the offering plates will be located in the back of the sanctuary for a while.
