Announcements / “Soundbites”

  • BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!
    NEXT SUNDAY (May 23rd) – 11:00 AM – WORSHIP IN THE SANCTUARY!!
    Starting early in AM – also worship STILL online at  http://chehalisumc.org  
    (Worship Watchers group will be discontinued at this time, however.)

HALLELUJAH!!

Worship is LIVE in the
sanctuary NEXT WEEK!!

We will be celebrating Pentecost
in our old familiar space!

HERE is a SUMMARY of the plan – with details that you will find on the church website http://chehalisumc.org early this week:

  • We will begin to meet for WORSHIP again in-person, in the sanctuary on Pentecost Sunday, May 23 (up to 50 persons per gathering, up to 2 gatherings)
  • Worship participants will be wearing face masks for the time being.
  • Participants will sit in family groups, with 6 feet distance between groups.
  • There are no children’s activities, including childcare.
  • There will be no hymn-singing.  One soloist may sing one song, or play one wind instrument for one performance, with greater distance, and re-masking when not performing.
  • Speakers during the service may remove their mask only while speaking, with distancing.
  • Hand sanitizer will be used on entering building, self-screen questions on a sign.
  • Sign-ins to the building will no longer be necessary.
  • Windows will be open as feasible, and other methods of extra ventilation of the spaces used indoors.  (Wear a jacket even indoors on cool days.)
  • Surfaces will be wiped down, as appropriate after the gathering has ended.

OTHER GATHERINGS (besides worship) may include up to 15 persons (target of 10), for Bible Study, prayer, committees, etc. in distance-appropriate spaces.  ALL must be scheduled and approved in advance by the pastor, up to 2 per week.

But is it safe??

Because of new CDC guidelines, and Bishop’s guidelines, we DO believe it is safe. So many of our members and constituents are immunized at this point, CDC says they could potentially go without masks! However, out of an abundance of caution and not to leave out those who are not able to be immunized, we will still wear masks and continue to distance for now. When Lewis county’s active infection rates lower to a more acceptable level this might change.
We would like to acknowledge that there are still people who do not feel safe making this change so quickly. There are some who are immune-compromised, or for whatever reason are unwilling or unable to be vaccinated. And there are those with underlying conditions which make them hestitant to be indoors in a group, even when vaccinated. Each person must make their own decision about vaccination, and about attendance. So, respecting the right of adults to choose the level of risk they will accept, no adult may be excluded from church activities due to health conditions or vaccination status. AND we will continue to provide access to worship through the internet, by video-recording the service and putting it up for viewing by Sunday afternoon.

Wednesday Night Bible Study
6:30-7:30 pm


Our Current Bible Study is “Acts,” via Zoom.  It’s not too late to start the study with us!

-The next session is #5 in the book, and pre-reading chapters from 11-12 from the Bible could be helpful. It is a quick read, but attend even if you haven’t read it. 

If you want to attend, but don’t have internet or a good connection at home, Mary Dahlstrom will meet you at church and she’ll Zoom to everyone else from there. Please let her know if you need to be there. She’ll stay home otherwise. 

Here is the link to use to join the ZOOM BIBLE STUDY on an internet enabled device, smartphone or computer – https://greaternw.zoom.us/j/93573921173 – We are able to screen share pages or videos.

“Worship Watchers” group(s)

We now have a group of persons (up to 10, including the leader) who meet on Sundays at 10 AM to watch the online worship together. Some parts of the service (like Prayers of the People) may be done live with sharing.

Another group can form when this one is full (which it currently is NOT). This means that anyone interested in attending on a given Sunday needs to call ahead to be put on one of the lists. Call during office hours to Valerie (360-748-7334), or to Pastor Karla (206-226-4694) outside those hours.
THIS/THESE GROUPs CONTINUE, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS AN OUTDOOR WORSHIP. Participants can choose which to attend. Some cannot navigate the outdoor situation!

IF YOU ARE AMONG THOSE WHO ARE SPONSORING a “House-church” type indoor watch-group, where a small group is invited to someone’s home to watch all or part of the service together: Please remember to let Pastor or church office (phone #s above) know of these watch groups. We are trying to keep “attendance” numbers for worship from all sorts of gatherings, to determine the reach of the church during the pandemic.

Outdoor Worship

As the weather gets warmer and drier, and until we can begin indoor worship again, we are having outdoor worship services. RAIN OR SHINE!! 

ALL OUTDOOR WORSHIP IS NOW IN THE PARKING LOT! Chairs are set up. A Great new portable sound system (and a better microphone, too).

RAIN: On days that are Rainy: Choose to bring an umbrella, OR stay in your car. (If less than 10 people show up, we’ll actually go inside!) Our new portable sound system is a good one, and has made it much easier to hear outside, even from your car (window down, of course). The umbrella might work well on a VERY sunny day, too!!

When can we go to INDOOR Worship?

This section may change some in the coming few weeks. The Bishop has sent out new directives, which are open to church planning groups to have more leeway in planning worship and other aspects of ministry, since vaccines are readily available now.

For now…. The answer is: Once we have come to a time when we’ve reached the 2.1 Stage/Phase of re-opening the building! – that is after 3 weeks of continuously being in the yellow or green zone). At that point you’ll receive notices on Thursdays as to whether we’ll be able to have worship (up to 25 persons each service) inside the building!

Over the last week, Lewis County has averaged 17 new confirmed cases per day
(21.2 per 100K residents).

The website to check for color zone of the pandemic that is referred to here is at this link:
 Covidactnow.org/us/washington-wa/county/lewis_county/?s=1758679. When reaching this site, scrolling down gives information and graphs about how our County is doing!   If we stay in the green or yellow zone, that’s GOOD for getting back to worship in person!  We pray for a more downward trend again soon!

THE UPPER ROOM

A FREE online version of the Upper Room is available, click this link: The Upper Room. This is available to us because our church subscribes and gets hard copies of the booklets. These are available at the church building.

Wednesday Night Bible Study
6:30-7:30 pm

 “Acts” is our newest Bible Study.


Bible Study Worship started last Wednesday, April 21, at 6:30 via Zoom. It’s not too late to start the study with us!

We began with the first 2 chapters of Acts. The next session is session 2 in the book, and pre-reading 3-5 chapters from the Bible could be helpful. It is a quick read, but attend even if you haven’t read it.  Question to ponder: The coming of the Holy Spirit changed the course of human history. What other past or current events have had that impact on human history?

If you want to attend, but don’t have internet or a good connection at home, Mary Dahlstrom will meet you at church and she’ll Zoom to everyone else from there. Please let her know if you need to be there. She’ll stay home otherwise. 

Here is the link to use to join the ZOOM BIBLE STUDY on an internet enabled device, smartphone or computer – https://greaternw.zoom.us/j/93573921173 – We are able to screen share pages or videos. Calling in without video gives you less advantage, though you could still hear the video, and would be welcome to listen in and join the discussion from your phone, OR take Mary up on her offer to zoom with her at the church! Additional ways to connect are: One tap mobile +12532158782,,93573921173# (Tacoma). Dial on any regular phone (landline) +1 253 215 8782 (Tacoma), then enter when prompted: Meeting ID: 935 7392 1173


“Worship Watchers” group(s)

We now have a group of persons (up to 10, including the leader) who meet on Sundays at 10 AM to watch the online worship together. Some parts of the service (like Prayers of the People) may be done live with sharing.

Another group can form when this one is full (which it currently is NOT). This means that anyone interested in attending on a given Sunday needs to call ahead to be put on one of the lists. Call during office hours to Valerie (360-748-7334), or to Pastor Karla (206-226-4694) outside those hours.
THIS/THESE GROUPs CONTINUE, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS AN OUTDOOR WORSHIP. Participants can choose which to attend. Some cannot navigate the outdoor situation!

IF YOU ARE AMONG THOSE WHO ARE SPONSORING a “House-church” type indoor watch-group, where a small group is invited to someone’s home to watch all or part of the service together: Please remember to let Pastor or church office (phone #s above) know of these watch groups. We are trying to keep “attendance” numbers for worship from all sorts of gatherings, to determine the reach of the church during the pandemic.

Outdoor Worship

As the weather gets warmer and drier, and until we can begin indoor worship again, we are having outdoor worship services. RAIN OR SHINE!! 

ALL OUTDOOR WORSHIP ARE IN THE PARKING LOT! Chairs are set up. A Great new portable sound system.

RAIN: On days that are Rainy: Choose to bring an umbrella, OR stay in your car. (If less than 10 people show up, we’ll actually go inside!) Our new portable sound system is a good one, and has made it much easier to hear outside, even from your car (window down, of course). The umbrella might work well on a VERY sunny day, too!!

When can we go to INDOOR Worship?

Once we have come to a time when we’ve reached the 2.1 Stage/Phase of re-opening the building! – that is after 3 weeks of continuously being in the yellow or green zone). At that point you’ll receive notices on Thursday as to whether we’ll be able to have worship (up to 25 persons each service) inside the building!

The website to check for color zone of the pandemic that is referred to above is at this link: Covidactnow.org/us/washington-wa/county/lewis_county/?s=1758679. When reaching this site, scrolling down gives information and graphs about how our County is doing!   If we stay in the green or yellow zone, that’s GOOD for getting back to worship in person! We HAD BEEN in the yellow zone for over a week, but since March 31 we have been back into orange, and the trajectory was upward again until this week. We pray for a more downward trend to continue!

As the weather gets warmer and drier, and until we can begin indoor worship again, we have started having outdoor worship services. RAIN OR SHINE!!

SHINE: We will set up chairs on the front lawn of the church! In case it begins to unexpectedly rain, there is the walkway off of the courtyard to give emergency cover! Though, it’s probably wiser to bring umbrellas! – maybe preparation will prevent rain 🙂

RAIN: On days that are Rainy from the beginning, we’ll meet in the parking lot. Choose to bring an umbrella, OR stay in your car. Our new portable sound system is a good one, and has made it much easier to hear outside.

Thanks to Marin for sharing her wonderful
children’s messages with us, on her youtube channel

You are invited to “go and get” something
to wave around during the hymn to follow,

“Worship Watchers” group(s)

We now have a group of persons (up to 10, including the leader) who meet on Sundays to watch the online worship together. Some parts of the service (like Prayers of the People) may be done live with sharing.

This was devised with a certain group of people in mind: Those who have missed worship altogether because they have no internet, or inadequate internet for watching.  So this group will always have priority.  Other persons are invited to join as there is room. And if there are enough people who are interested, then there can be more groups of up to 10 added!

This means that anyone interested in attending on a given Sunday needs to call ahead to be put on the list. Call during office hours to Valerie (360-748-7334), or to Pastor Karla (206-226-4694) outside those hours.

THIS GROUP WILL CONTINUE, WHETHER OR NOT THERE IS AN OUTDOOR WORSHIP. Participants can choose which to attend.

Outdoor Worship

As the weather gets warmer and drier, and until we can begin indoor worship again, we will start having occasional outdoor worship services. The decision on whether we can meet on a given Sunday will be made by Thursday of each week based on weather forcast, and a notice sent out to members and friends on Thursday, based on the forecast for Sunday! We will set up chairs on the front lawn of the church! In case it begins to unexpectedly rain, there is the walkway off of the courtyard to give emergency cover!

Once we have come to a time when we’ve reached the 2.1 Stage/Phase of re-opening (that is after 3 weeks of continuously being in the yellow or green zone), the same procedure will continue to let us know which week(s) we will be allowed to worship (up to 25 persons each service) inside the building!

The website to check for color zone of the pandemic that is referred to above is  http://www.CovidActNow.org. When reaching this site, click on Washington State in the U.S. map and then on Lewis County. Scrolling down gives information and graphs about how our County is doing!   If we stay in the green or yellow zone, that’s GOOD for getting back to worship in person! WE HAVE BEEN IN THE YELLOW ZONE FOR ONE FULL WEEK NOW – Praise God! KEEP IT UP, Lewis County!

Jesus Loves Me
– The UM Hymnal #191
Led by Andrea LaBlanc

1 – Jesus loves me,
     this I know
     For the Bible tells me so
     Little ones to him belong
     They are weak,
    but he is strong.

Refrain
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
The Bible tells me so.

2 – Jesus loves me, this I know,
     As he loved so long ago,
     Taking children on his knee,
     Saying “Let them come to me.”

3 –     Jesus loves me still today,
          Walking with me on the way,
          Wanting as a friend to give
          Light and life to all who live.

O, The Deep Deep Love of Jesus – Epic Version!   Arr. Khorolskiy

  • O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
    rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me.
    Underneath me, all around me, is the current of Thy love;
    leading onward, leading homeward to my glorious rest above.
  •  O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread His praise from shore to shore!
    How He loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore!
    How He watcheth o’er His loved ones, died to call them all His own;
    how for them He intercedeth, watcheth o’er them from the throne.
  • O the deep, deep love of Jesus, love of ev’ry love the best;
     ’tis an ocean vast of blessing, ’tis a haven sweet of rest.
    O the deep, deep love of Jesus, ’tis heav’n of heav’ns to me;
    and it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to Thee.
