Hearing Loop - In early May, Upstate Hearing Loops installed a hearing loop in the sanctuary. The cost of the loop was covered by generous members of the congregation. It allows those with hearing aids to receive the audio directly to their hearing aids. For those with hearing difficulty, but do not have hearing aids, the church has four receivers that can be used along with earbuds or headphones. This will improve accessibility in our church and we are blessed to have this in our worship space!
Book Club – June 18th at 7 pm. Please join this fun group for discussion and refreshments. The book for June is “Small Great Things" by Jodi Picoult..
Fair Trade – Please check out our new display in the Fellowship Hall next to the bookcase. Items can be purchased from the cart.
