SSUMC *ANTICIPATES RETURNING* TO IN-PERSON WORSHIP
JULY 5, 2020
SSUMC anticipates returning to our regular in-person Sunday worship services next Sunday
with our Traditional Service at 8:30am and Contemporary Service at 11am.
SSUMC continues monitoring COVID-19 Infection Rates in our local area.
In seeking to do no harm and to do good, if SSUMC Leadership determines delaying our return to in-person worship in order to support and preserve the public health of our congregation, we will do so. A churchwide email, as well as announcements to the SSUMC website and Social Media, will be posted by Noon on Thursday, July 2 if we are not gathering in person for worship.
SSUMC will also continue streaming our services via each Sunday. We are in the process of switching to our new broadcast system; as those preparations are completed, a churchwide email containing detailed instructions will be sent to guide worshippers in our new processes.
We invite you to prepare for our return to in-person worship by reading Pastor Sarah’s sermon manuscripts from May 24, May 31, and June 7 as they detail adaptations made to our church facility and congregational practices as we strive to do no harm, do good, and attend upon the ordinances of God with public health and public safety being at the forefront of our minds.
These manuscripts are available by emailing the Church Office via email@example.com.
JULY REPLENISH RESTORE FOOD DRIVE THIS WEDNESDAY ~ JULY 1, 2020
SSUMC’s Replenish Restore Food Drive for July will be Wednesday, July 1 from 10am to 1pm.
Please drive by and drop off your non-perishable food donations in support of our ministry partnership with Restore, a ministry of Riverview First UMC. Our June Drive was an incredible success and witness of God working in our midst even in the midst of great challenge. We hope our July drive be an even greater blessing to those most vulnerable and experiencing food insecurities during this time.
*Donations received in paper bags greatly ease transportation and delivery. Thank you!*
