May 10th Sunday Service

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
JOYS and SORROWS & COFFEE HOUR
Sunday, May 10th – 11:30 am (on Zoom)
Following the regular time slot for our 10:30 Sunday morning service, we will hold a “Joys and Sorrows” online check-in, where everyone has a chance to share our worries and sorrows, as well as our joys and sources of happiness, without questions or discussion. This will be followed by a “Coffee Hour” when we can ask questions, and delve deeper into conversation, if we choose. Join us at 11:30 am by clicking the link which was emailed to you on Friday by our Fellowship Office Administrator. Instructions on how to join a Zoom gathering are available here.
