Good afternoon church family,
Please read below for important announcements from Shady Grove-
- Our first in-person worship services will be cautiously scheduled for this Sunday, July 5th. We are eager to reopen but recognize that cases of the virus continue to rise. We will be monitering the istuation throughout the week. If we see any more infections in our church body or a radical increase of cases in our area, we will adjust our worship plan to again be only online for this Sunday. As of today, we will begin accepting RSVP's for this Sunday's service with an important note for this Sunday only. If you had already RSVP'd for Sunday, June 21st, and plan on attending this Sunday, we already have you on our list and you do not have to call to RSVP. If you RSVP'd for the 21st and cannot make it this Sunday, then please call the church to take your name off the list. If you did not RSVP for the 21st but plan to attend church this Sunday, please call the church office and let us know you plan to attend. This method will only be used for this Sunday as we have already put together attendance lists and information, and it will be easier for us just to accept new RSVP's or take those who cannot be there this Sunday off of our attendee list.
-The church office will be closed Monday and Tuesday as Ashley finishes out her quarantine after being exposed to the coronavirus. The office will reopen on Wednesday. She has transfered the church phone to her cell phone, so you may still call the church if you have any questions or concerns or would like to RSVP for this Sunday.
-On behalf of the Children's Ministry, Ashley will be giving out free water activity buckets this Thursday to families woud like to cool down on July 4th weekend! She plans for this to be an outreach opportunity both in the church and in the community and hopes the buckets will bring families together this weekend. The pick up date is July 2nd from 4:30-6:30. There are 30 buckets available and it will be first come, first served. She will be handing out one bucket per car. If you would like to learn more, you can call the church office or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She hopes the families in the church and the community will take advantage of these free activities!
*Water bucket- 2 water guns, 2 water blasters, 3 water splash balls, 2 bubble wands, 1 beach ball, sidewalk chalk, water balloons, and a family devotion.
-Prayer Concerns- Let's remember the DeMaria family this week as Kyndall has major surgery on Wednesday. Let's also keep in our prayers Terry Witt, who is having surgery this week, and Al Cohan, who is still in the hospital with coronavirus.
We love you, church family!
