IT’S FLU SEASON…
As we’re in the midst of the flu season, it’s OK if you don’t shake hands during the sharing of the peace. In fact, it might be better altogether to just give a fist pump, or a nod and a smile. If you do wish to shake hands with those around you, know that hand sanitizer is available in the church lobby and other places around the church. Thanks for your cooperation on this until we get through flu season.
