Onsite Services: Mask wearing optional. Safe distancing must be observed. While it is always wise to stay home when you are feeling cold or flu symptoms, it is especially important now if you have any symptoms for cold, flu or COVID-19. Possible COVID symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, night sweats, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, muscle or body aches, headaches, confusion, or loss of sense of taste/smell.

Coffee Hour:  We have a coffee hour after each service. Pull up a chair and visit.

~~~

Recycling: Bring your CRV bottle and can recyclables to church.  Place them in the bins in the Robing Room (that area outside the Parish Hall bathroom).  Boyd Roberts will collect them and the funds from the returns go to the church.

~~~

Discretionary Fund: Rev. Debra maintains a Discretionary Fund that she can use to provide assistance as needed. She can provide emergency assistance for food, transportation, and help with medical bills. The Vestry provides some funding for this every year, but additional donations would expand what Rev. Debra can do during the year. Donations may be made to Church of Our Saviour, with "Discretionary Fund" in the memo line.
