61st Church Anniversary Newsletter
From the Desk of the Pastor
In person worship Services continue to be temporarily cancelled. We have a written plan for the church reopening which will lessen the likelihood of exposure during services. The plan can be viewed here.
Please note that on the Holy Light MBC Facebook account there is a live service at 9:00am every Sunday morning.
Church Anniversary – 61st is the second Sunday in July. This year we will not have an in person worship service for the anniversary. The live service will on face book at 9am and then can be viewed on the church website. We are planning on various church projects being completed this summer. The painting project will commence on Monday July 6th. We are asking for a special anniversary offering of $100.00 from each member that will assist in the completion of the projects. The first major project is the painting of the inside of the church including the sanctuary, fellowship hall and vestibule.
Holy Light Face Masks are available for $10 each. They will be available in black as well as purple.
