further notice. We encourage you to stay home and sign on to our Facebook live
feed a few minutes before 10:00am. We will stream the full service and invite you to participate online.
We will invite you to interact with singing, typing your prayer requests, communion and clicking the donate button for
offering time! Have some crackers or bread and juice and we will consecrate your elements during communion.

and it will take you to our Facebook page – you may need to scroll down to the video that says “live video” and
click on it to start listening.
We will sign on a few minutes early so everyone can get settled in and ready to start at 10am
FYI When you sign on from a search engine – make sure there is no space between embraceucc or it will take you

We look forward to this opportunity of finding creative ways to stay connected and be the community
during a time where we need to do our part in keeping this virus from spreading.
