Because of the timing of the pandemic, we have not offered an orientation to our church community, which includes information about membership, in over a year. Membership in the congregation is primarily a public witness to your faith in Jesus Christ. Secondarily, it opens doors for service in the leadership of the congregation and to having a voice and vote in all decisions that come to the congregation. Pastor Amy and an elder from the Session are available to offer an orientation class via zoom for anyone who is interested. Contact her or leave a message with the church office and we’ll find a mutually agreeable time to meet for the orientation.
Roza has re-written her reflection. We will add it to the website soon!
Your session is working on the required re-opening document that will allow us to re-open the building for different types of gatherings starting as early as Phase 4 of the Washington state COVID-19 phases for Snohomish County. A task force has been formed and has begun meeting. On Sunday, June 28th at 2 PM (following our 1 PM check-in), we invite you to log-in by Zoom to ask questions of the task force regarding our re-opening plans. We will schedule other opportunities to learn more as we get closer to re-opening the building for group use.
In order to track who has been in the building, should we need to answer that question for a public health contact tracker, we have placed a sign-in sheet at the main entry to the church. Please log in and log out, indicating which areas of the church you visited. Currently there are no meetings scheduled at the church building and staff is using the facility on a limited basis.
We also ask that you monitor your own symptoms and if you are experiencing fever, cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, please do not visit the church building.
You’re invited …February 16th following 10 AM worship.
Bring a dish to share and enjoy a time of fellowship together.
If you have wondered what Presbyterians believe, what makes EPC the unique place that it is, or what it means to officially profess your faith in Jesus Christ and become a member, let’s talk! Contact Pastor Amy for more information and to be included as we choose a mutually agreeable time to meet.
You are invited to join us for an hour of prayer once a month on the third Thursday at 10 AM. This month, that date is December 19th.
