This 6th Sunday of Easter, May 9th, we will gather in-person outdoors in our parking lot for worship. Holy Communion will be provided. Please wear a mask and bring your own chair. We will gather for a physically distanced fellowship time immediately following outdoors for those who would like to. I encourage us to stay a little while and greet one another as we begin to slowly return to some of our regular practices. Coffee and goodies will not be provided just yet.
We will also be announcing the election of a new Bishop for the 190 congregations of our Sierra Pacific Synod, who will serve for the next 6 years. Please keep this election in your prayers as Barbara Rice, Kent Madsen and myself will be attending the first-ever virtual online Synod Assembly that began Thursday May 6 and ended Saturday May 8.
