It's hard to believe that fall is almost here!

This summer has been an interesting one, and hopefully we've all been able to realize what is important. Although we may not be physically together as often or at all, our church is still a small community and very lively!

Session continues to adapt and reminds everyone to maintain our strength and vitality in adhering to COVID-19 mitigation. Although the mitigation practices limit our interaction and require minor inconveniences, they are in line with best practices from the medical community. At our last meeting, Session formed a committee dedicated to guiding the church through this pandemic. The committee will deliberate guidelines, mitigation practices, and the current situation to form recommendations to Session. Susan Lockwood will be Session's liaison on the committee, and you are encouraged to speak with her if you would like to join the committee. At our recent called congregational meeting, we voted Donna Swingley to fill Becky Mast's position in the elder Class of 2022.

Thank you to Becky, Donna, and the Nominating Committee for their continued service! As Donna moves onto Session, she will be overseeing Fellowship and the newly created Congregational Care ministries. Susan will transition to Property through the end of the year.

Finally, the Nominating Committee will shortly begin considering elders for installation next year to the Class of 2023! Please prayerfully consider if you are being called to serve. Further details will be coming soon from the committee chair, Deb Hitchcock.

Best, Ethan Clerk of Session
