Sundays and Snow

Celebration!
If you haven’t noticed, we are getting a good old Muskegon winter.  Cold temperatures and several inches of snow each day.  Lots of fun!  With this in mind, we wanted to keep you up to date for Sundays.

If our Sunday service is cancelled due to snowfall or dangerously low temps, we will send an email out to everyone, post it on Facebook, and contact WZZM.  As a general rule, Pastor Matt lived in Minnesota too long to cancel at the first sign of snow.  Remember to use common sense if you are not confident driving in this weather.

TOMORROW: The forecast for this Sunday is for no snow trouble.  We hope to see you there for the New Year’s Eve service at 10:30AM.  Just in case you are unable to attend, we did 2 things: 1) we sent the bulletin for the morning service in an email to everyone on our list.  This way you can catch up on all the weekly events and prayer requests.  Contact us if you aren’t on the list and would like to be.

And 2) we plan to broadcast the service on Facebook Live on Pastor Matt’s FB page.  You can turn up the volume and worship from home, use the sermon notes in the bulletin to follow along, and give a shout out that you are following.

SO, hope to see you tomorrow!
Pastor Matt
