Sunday January 3, 2021

We welcome Pastor Joe back this Sunday morning and pray God’s richest blessing on him as he brings the morning message. Sunday morning’s message is titled “Searching For Jesus”, and is based on the scripture Luke 2:41-51.

We also will be having Communion during the service.

Immediately following the worship service we will be un-decorating the sanctuary. If you are able, please stay and help. All help is needed and appreciated.

We encourage all who are not in self-quarantine to come join us for worship. For the sake of the most vulnerable among us, please remember our guidelines:

-If you feel ill or suspect you were in a setting that exposed you to COVID, please use the streaming of the service at home.

-Please use the hand sanitizer (wall mounted) as you enter.

-Be sure to space yourself or your household 6 feet or more from others in the pews. There should be plenty of room in the sanctuary.

-Please wear a mask, and use it as you can, especially if you raise your voice while speaking or singing.

-Let the ushers/microphone runners handle offering plates and microphones. We count on ushers and runners to be masked, with cleaned hands, while serving in your role. Runners need to wipe the top of the microphone after every use, and re-sanitize after sharing time is done.

-We will continue to stream our services via Zoom and on our Church’s Facebook site (Mt. Hope UM Church of Greater Johnstown) indefinitely. Some of our folk will need to continue to protect their health by staying at home.

Let us all keep watching/praying for all the ways we can continue to broaden our church life and connections with each other while protecting our health as well. Be generous in sharing your outreach personally with each other, as well as fresh ideas for the coming seasons.

See you in church.
