Grand Opening Plus One

 
 

Tomorrow a very special friend of mine will be preaching. Paul McNabb. Paul was a part of the congregation of the Woodstock First United Methodist Church and would often take a spot in my absence.

 

Paul preached here about two years ago so you may remember him. Paul has been an ordained Minister for 54 years. Paul pastored four churches in Arkansas and Wisconsin and was a Navy chaplain for 27 years. Additionally he was a Naval flight officer for 10 years and founder of the East Aurora ROTC.

 

Paul and Demaris have been married 52 years and have four children, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Welcome Paul and Demaris.
 

We Hope You Will Join in Tomorrow at Sunday 10:15

Some questions some have asked

 

  • If you are vaccinated is it still okay to wear a mask?

Absolutely it is okay. we will continue to follow the

CDC guidelines as we have been. The guidelines

are that if you’re fully vaccinated you do not need to

wear a mask. If you are not fully vaccinated then we

hope you will wear a mask. we will operate on the

honor system. and there will be those who are fully

vaccinated will for a variety of reasons still choose to

wear mask.

  1. If you are not vaccinated, are you still welcome if you

wear mask? the short answer is absolutely. The long

answer is absolutely. We welcome welcome

welcome you and all.

  1. Will there be a designated area for people who

still want to be socially distanced? We are so

glad that you asked that question because we had

not thought about doing that. But because you do

that to our attention yes there will be six rows set

aside for social distancing. They will be the six rows

directly in front of the piano.

  1. Is singing allowed? Not only is it allowed it is

encouraged. We may even catch up on some of the

holiday songs that we have not been able to sing

together over the past year. Feel free to keep in mind

the fourth instruction that Wesley gave to his

congregation,” Sing lustily and with good courage.

Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half

asleep; but lift up your voice with strength. Be no

more afraid of your voice now, nor more ashamed of

its being heard, than when you sung the songs of

Satan”.

Town Hall Meeting

 

Keeping in touch with one anther.

 

In an age of instant communication it is still takes work to keep one another fully informed. The church council has thought about this and wants to try having a regular town hall type meeting to give an opportunity for the church leadership to hear from the church community and the church community to hear from the church leadership.

 

Our first Town Hall meeting is scheduled for Sunday, June 27th at 11:30. It will be held in the sanctuary and live via zoom. We hope you will attend,.
