Presbytery of West Virginia - You may view staff-led worship services at this address:
We strongly recommend that all people, vaccinated and not vaccinated, continue to wear a mask. Just a reminder about masks, we do not wear them to protect ourselves - we wear them to protect others. All other in-person worship protocols will remain in place and will be reviewed at the July session meeting.
Hand Sanitizer will be available as you enter the building.
We ask that you please use it before entering the church building.
Maintain appropriate social distancing; we plan to block off every other pew.
Family members may sit together. Please restrict any gatherings to outside.
While singing, please sing softly or hum.
Please suspend your regular practice of hugs and handshakes for now.
We recognize how hard this is to not do, especially since we haven’t been together in over a
year. But we ask that you hold off for a bit longer.
There will be no nursery.
Please go directly outside.
We plan to continue streaming our worship through YouTube and Facebook for those unable to attend in person.
We look forward to seeing you in worship if you are able!

Please use these suggested scriptures, questions, and activities to help you explore your faith.
January 23 – Third Sunday after Epiphany: Read 1 Corinthians 12: 12-31a “There is one body, but it has many parts. But all its many parts make up one body. It is the same with Christ.” Each of us has an appointed role as part of the body of Christ. This week, consider the role you have and how you carry out its responsibilities.
January 30 – Fourth Sunday after Epiphany: Read Jeremiah 1: 4-10 “Before I formed you in your mother’s body, I chose you.” God chose Jeremiah to be God’s messenger to the nations. Though Jeremiah insisted he was too young, God gave him the words to say. What has God called you to speak to others about God’s way? What excuses keep you from sharing God’s word with them?
