***COVID UPDATE from Pastor Ron:
Greetings. I wanted to update you on our status for Covid. The task force met Sunday night and the following was decided.

Starting Sunday, March 7th, we returned to in person worship in the sanctuary at 11:00 AM wearing masks, washing hands, and physical distancing. The service will be limited to keep the time to about 30 minutes. We will not have congregational singing or children’s moment for the month of March. We will continue to have Zoom and Facebook available for those who are uncomfortable with in person worship.

We also resumed in person meetings of less than 25 wearing masks, washing hands, and physical distancing. This includes Sunday School from 10:00-10:45AM. Other meetings are on the schedule.

Thank you for your faithfulness and patience as we continue to maneuver these unknown waters. Please invite those who do not have email or who do not have a church family. I hope to see you on Sunday. Have a blessed week.

Pastor Ron Hartman
Friendship/Pine Grove Charge

Please continue to wear your masks, wash hands often, stay 6 feet away from others & keep praying for our world, nation, church, and community!
