MISSION COLLECTION ITEM
Annual Fall Blanket Drive
Let’s “blanket” Open Door Ministries and New Covenant UMC with these warm coverings, sharing God’s love. Bring your new or gently used, any size blanket in October. You can leave them in the designated container outside the Fellowship Hall doors by the brown mailbox.
COMING UP
Church Office
The church office is open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Please call ahead before assuming the person you need to see will be there.
 
In-Person Worship and Sunday School
In-person worship is now at 11 a.m. Face masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizing will be among the precautions taken, including a picture taken of the congregation in the event contact tracing is required, and there will be a modified order of worship to maximize safety. Offering boxes and a disinfectant spray system will be used. If  the positive tests in Sedgwick County go above 7.5%, or as needed, the Administrative Board subcommittee will reconvene to determine whether this will continue.
 
Youth will have Sunday school combined with Youth Group in the late afternoon and evening. Cynthia will being implementing possibilities for children. Staff will work with adult Sunday school classes and small groups to determine how to proceed safely if they desire to begin meeting.
 
There will continue to be live-streamed worship at 9:30 and 11 a.m., as well as the parking lot service at 8:15 a.m. as long as weather permits. Park your cars in every other space and tune your FM radio to 104.9. You can either stay in your car, or bring chairs, wear masks, and sit in front of your car.

Thank You, Don!
Don Gray has resigned as the Director of Worship Arts at Aldersgate; his last Sunday was October 4. Don served for 11 years and was noted for seeing his work as a true calling. He crafted and helped lead the 8 and 11 a.m. worship services, wrote liturgy, led the Carillon Bells choir, the Chancel choir, the orchestra, and more. Just as he was deeply appreciated, he will be deeply missed.
Library Partial Reopening
We are doing a partial reopening of the church library. Look up the materials (books and/or DVDs) that you would like to check out, make a list of the titles you want, and email your list to Traci Ahlstrom, call her at 316-722-8504, or go to the office and hand her your list. She will pull the titles you have selected, fill out the check-out card for you, and bring them to you at the door. To return items, please bring them by the office on any THURSDAY. The materials will be quarantined for 72 hours in a plastic tub before they are returned to the shelves on the following MONDAY.
