Cancellations – Closings
The Consistory met on Sunday, Oct. 4, and decided to keep the church closed for another month to protect the health and safety of the congregation. However, there will be an in-person Annual Financial Meeting on Sunday, Nov. 8, at noon. Our bylaws require this meeting to approve the 2021 budget and elect Consistory members. Congregation members attending the meeting will be required to wear masks and socially distance in the sanctuary.
In the meantime, Pastor Hartshorn has been taping mini-sermons that are available on this website (click the Blog button to see it) and on Facebook. These are being offered regularly while the church is closed, so check back often to see if there is a new one.
Our Thursday night community dinners have continued in spite of this pandemic, with dinners being “to go” and handed out at the door instead of the usual sit-down meal. Our thanks to all of the community dinner volunteers for keeping this important service going in a safe manner.
Pastor Tom Hartshorn is available to anyone who needs or wants to talk. His number is 304-279-7332 or you can reach him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave your name and call-back number if you get his voice mail. He also asks church members to pass on news to him of anyone who is sick or in the hospital.
Church members wishing to tithe may send checks to the church at: 117 East Burke St., Martinsburg, WV 25401.
Please stay safe and limit your travel. We’ll be praying that everyone in our community remains healthy.
