5.     Children’s whereabouts after Sunday School:  There won’t be babysitters for the time being.  We also decided the SBS will be cancelled until further notice.  This is to avoid over crowding and close contact with each other.  For this reason, we would like to ask the parents or guardians to accompany the children as much as possible.

6.     Holy Communion in the month of July:  To prevent infection, we will not be dispensing bread and grape juice during the communion.  Let's partake with the communion as if we had bread and grape juice in our hands.  There will be no preparing for the communion ministry since we won’t be service bread and grape juice.

7.     Online giving:  Since it’s only in Japanese, please contact one of the pastors how to transfer funds online.
