Church Services will resume live at QUMC starting September 6th
at 11: 00 a.m. Hallelujah!!!
Here is a little of what you can expect:
Masks are required, one will be provided if you forget yours.
Temperatures and hand sanitizer will be taken and given out at the front
entrance of the church. You will be escorted to a socially distanced seat
upon entering the sanctuary. Per our conference guidelines we will not
use the hymnals or Bibles in the pews. There will be no signing at this
time, as the guidelines state we would need to be 16’ apart to do this
safely. We do plan to have words to worship projected on a screen and
also available in a hand out. Please take all items with you when you
exit the church. We will not be having our fellowship time as of yet.
There will be no children’s education or nursery at this time. Handout
or packets will be available for the children. We must not use the
fellowship hall as the Baptist church is using this space and we are
intentionally trying to keep these areas sperate for infection control and
cleaning purposes. We will only be using the restrooms off of the
Narthex, and only 1 person in at a time. The ushers will help navigate
this process. We will exit through the back, on the ramp near the
school. Sanitizer will be given out then too. A basket for offering will
be on your way in and out of church as will one for communion on
those Sundays. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Did You Know:
Thomas Yarzuah started a school in Liberia?
St. Thomas Christian School System is located opposite Coca - Cola Factory in Paynesville, Monrovia-Liberia. Paynesville is a suburb east of Monrovia, Liberia.
St. Thomas Christian School System was established as a result of a growing need for a school in the Community.
Community members were concern about their kids being hit by reckless drivers while crossing the road seeking education in another community.
The safety of these kids and the need to help educate these kids who are the future leaders is very important. A building was rented in fenced in for the kids’ safety and good learning environment. The school started September 17, 2018.
Over two hundred (200) kids had enrolled this academic year from Kindergarten to 9th grade, and 25 staff. The school has a feeding program that each kid can have a meal and not to be incapacitated to learn because of hunger.
Some kids have a meal a day and some do not because of poverty. Please pray with me for support and for the school to get its own land.
Saturday, June 20th — God’s Creation
At this time sadly we must cancel our last event
planned, The God’s Creation Kid’s Club for June. We will
follow the guidelines of the state and our conference and
restart this outreach program when it is safe for us all to do so.
I promise the children of this church and friends that might
come, we will hunt for Easter Eggs no matter when that time
I have missed everyone, but especially the fun we
have with the children on our Club days.
Suspended due to Covid-19
