Helping others with a Blessing Bag: Pat and Wink continue to collect and deliver “Blessing Bag” necessity packages to the homeless population in Wooster. If anyone would like to contribute to this outreach, there will be a box in the church basement, on the table near the side basement door where you can place any donations. Thank you in advance for sharing any of the suggested items: socks, small soaps and shampoo, deodorant, razors, chapstick, small sunblock, feminine products, wet wipes, bandages, nail clippers, single serving meats (tuna) and snacks (like raisins, granola bars, trail mix, nuts and crackers).

Council has decided to use the CDC guidelines to wait for four weeks of declining new cases of COVID-19 in Ohio before in-person worship.  This last week we have an all-time high of cases in Ohio since the pandemic began.
