Do you miss Sunday morning worship?  Well, why not double-dip?  Pastor Jesse and our friends at Bethany would LOVE to have you join them in person or online on Sunday morning.  If you’re going to attend in person, please arrive by 9:15 am.  If you’re joining online, the service begins at 9:25 on Bethany’s Zoom account.

We will continue providing Zoom broadcasts of our services this week as well.  Keep in mind, just because we are meeting in person does NOT mean that you MUST join us in person.  If you would like to join us and feel safe doing so, we would LOVE to have you.

If you’re still not sure, stay home and join us via Zoom. https://zoom.us/j/5153822077 (or launch the Zoom app and “Join” meeting 515 382 2077).  As in the past, you will need to put in a password AFTER you have entered the meeting ID: 3548999
