"Be still and know that I am God"


With the current spike in covid cases and after consulting other members of the W&M committee as well as the clerk and alternate clerk of MMFP, it has been decided that in person MFW at the meetinghouse on alternate Sundays will be suspended, effective immediately at least until January 2021, when the situation will be reevaluated.


Per MMFP's Meeting for Worship for Business held the sixth month, 21st day, 2020, these guidelines were distributed by Steve Lewis, clerk of the Worship and Ministry committee, in the finalized form via the Arch mailing list on 7/4/20 1:56:04 PM.
