Extending Grace to One Another

As we continue to transition back to worship and programs in our buildings, we invite all to meet one another with grace, forgiveness, and good communication.  We invite us also to give one another permission to set boundaries, observe safety protocols, and distance in a way that is comfortable for each.  As Paul wrote to the Colossians: “Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others, not put them down, not cut them out.”


Cabinet will continue to monitor and discuss.

As always, please contact us with questions, encouragement and/or suggestions.
