1. DUE TO CONORNAVIRUS PANDEMIC , THE BOARD HAS AGREED THAT IT IS BETTER TO HAVE US SUSPEND SHAKING HANDS, HUGGING, ETC. WE WANT TO PROTECT OUR CHURCH MEMBERS FIRST AND FOREMOST. WE ASK THAT EVERYONE PLEASE REFRAIN FROM THE ABOVE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. PLEASE PASS THIS INFO
ON TO OUR LITTLE ONES AS WELL SO THEY UNDERSTAND.  


2. CANCELLED: The first quarter communion is cancelled at this time. In addition, fellowship and visitor luncheons are cancelled through April 12 th . Because both of these events include food preparation and handling, the board agreed to suspend them at this time. There will also be no men’s fellowship breakfast until further notice. We will keep you informed.


3. VIRUS : If you are sick, please stay home!! Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizers that are available. Virus precautions and hand-washing techniques are posted in each restroom. If you are elderly (over 70) or have compromised health, think about whether you should attend church. Your primary care doctor may be a good source to contact about whether you should attend or not.


4. ACTS OF SERVICE: If you are elderly or have health issues, we want you to know that we as a church body want to serve you by going to the store or pharmacy for you so that you can avoid public places. Please call the church office and let us know. Our elders, deacons and deaconesses want to serve you at this time if you need
it.


5. FJA: The social studies fair at FJA that was scheduled for March 19 th , has been cancelled. We are hoping to reschedule in May. We will let you know the new date.


6. PATHFINDERS: The pathfinder work-a-thon is scheduled for April 3-5 at Ruth Lake. They will not actively be calling you for sponsors or donations this year. Last year they did, and then the work-a-thon was cancelled so the leaders feel it is not appropriate to call for donations and sponsors this year. However, if you want to
make a donation, you are still welcome to.
