When we think of June, we think of the beginning of summer. We think of graduations and cookouts, of being with family and friends, things we have not been able to do for over a year. We are so looking forward to being able to do these things this year. For many, it has been a long time since they have been able to see and hug their loved ones. We are grateful that things are starting to feel more normal.
Things are starting to get back to normal here at church. We have been worshiping in person since before Easter and after June 15, we will be able to worship without masks. The Millennial Choir is back using our Sanctuary for their rehearsals. The OK-Chorale is looking at resuming in person rehearsals the first part of July. There are little voices out on the playground. This month, the Church Council will hold its first in person council meeting in over a year.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the church leaders and staff who have enabled us to continue being the church during these challenging times. They have been flexible, creative, and dedicated to the ministry of the LCUMC. As we come back, things will not entirely be the same, but we have seen that we are capable of adapting.
See you in church,
