We all are aware of the continuing spread of the coronavirus and the lockdown measures that the government is taking to reduce the number of new cases and hospitalizations. In the midst of this pandemic, we believe it is our responsibility as a Christian community to support these measures with our prayers and our actions.

2nd Service starts at 10:15 AM
Please comply with the following guidelines. We will have 2 services to help minimize the amount of people in the building at each time.
1.) Please wear a mask while in the building and around other members.
2.) PLEASE NO DIRECT CONTACT WITH OTHERS. Feel free to wave and say hello from a distance. You may be comfortable with hugging someone, but they may not. We ask no socializing at entrances or doorways.
3.) IF YOU DO NOT FEEL WELL, PLEASE STAY HOME!

Have you seen our newly installed Blessing Box?  Alyssa P from Troy with Girl Scout Troop 258 has used her Silver Award to add a blessing box at Friedens. Sending a huge Thank you to Alyssa, her family & troop leader, Krysti, for all their hard work and for bringing this beautiful addition to this side of town.
