After the consistory and the COVID safety committee have taken into consideration the historically lower attendance in January (unpredictable weather), the rapid rise in covid infections and re-infections (omicron variant), and perhaps most importantly that Scott Haefner and Linda Gardner (who have done 99.9% of the coffee hours recently) could use a break for a few weeks, we are taking a pause from coffee hour for January.
That being said, we also understand how important it is for many of you that connecting in casual conversation goes a long way in relieving much of the stress we are all feeling. Therefore, if you, as an individual, a family or a committee would like to sponsor a coffee hour (which includes set-up, providing treats and cleaning up afterward) please contact Suzi at firstname.lastname@example.org to take a January date. At this point there will be NO coffee hour on January 16th & 30th.
We did get one group to cover the JANUARY 23rd coffee hour. The Mission & Service Committee will be hosting coffee hour that week so we can have Q&A time with Tom Schofield, Manager of Food Justice Initiatives and Pantry Operations at SICM.
In the meantime… your conversations, greetings, stories, and jokes can continue on the Sunday and Wednesday ZOOM coffee hours. See the scheduled times and links below:
We have TWO coffee hour ZOOMS every week:
Wednesday morning at 10am
Sunday morning at 10:45am
