**Sunday School Cancelation**

We have made the decision to adjust our schedule by canceling Sunday School this coming Sunday, January 16. We will gather for corporate worship at 10:30 in the sanctuary.

We are still dealing with COVID issues primarily in our Children’s area, which will make it very difficult to have teachers and leaders in all of our preschool and children’s classes. We expect it will get harder between now and Sunday and not easier to get trained and pre-screened volunteers into each room. As you might realize, if we cancel our children’s classes we need to cancel all Sunday School classes.

In addition to issues with COVID, there is also the threat of inclement weather, which will likely only be a concern during the earliest hours of Sunday morning. This makes a delayed arrival optimal for our Sunday gathering. As we all know, the weather event could become nothing or become more serious, so keep your eyes on the weather reports and exercise caution as you normally would.

We are praying for you and we trust that you will join us in praying for those who are sick and those who are recovering! We look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
