Word to the Wyes – January 2023

Weather watch: As we move into winter, if the weather seems questionable, please watch for an email alert from the church regarding services. We will also update the website. We want everyone to be safe.

Progress is well underway with the pipe burst incident at St. Luke’s. Everything has been stabilized and piping restored. We have met with the insurance adjuster and most damage will be covered by insurance. Restoration should be completed by the end of the month. The good news is that the Books Café is still on schedule.

Sunday School Update
Happy New Year from the Sunday school class at Old Wye! We’re looking forward to seeing our old friends and welcoming new friends to our fun-filled classes this month.
Come and enjoy the weekly gospel lesson, a creative craft, and yummy snacks. We might just do a little singing and dancing too! Miss Lauren, Miss Sarah, and Miss Bibi look forward to seeing children of all ages at 9:00 on: January 22nd at Old Wye Church
