Our Thrift Shop has reopened on Saturdays only from 10-2. New precautions include mandatory masks and gloves for all workers and volunteers, a plastic sheet to protect cashiers, and a shopper limit of 6.
Wednesday morning Bible study meets weekly at 10:00 a.m., with masks, social distancing and no food or drink.
However, on nice weather days we’ll be outside (no mask required!).
The same holds true for Wednesday evening Bible study at 7.
All food-related fundraisers and activities remain suspended, and Sayville’s Summerfest has been cancelled
so we will not be having Clamfest this summer. When conditions improve, we’ll consider an in-house event.
The Sayville Food Pantry is open from 9:30-12 Tuesday-Friday, seeing clients on an appointment basis. In addition to food, they also have a limited amount of funds available for anyone who may need monetary assistance. The pantry is located at 47 Gillette Avenue in Sayville. They are accepting food donations as well as gas and supermarket gift cards, which can be dropped off during operating hours; just knock on the door.
Looking for help of any kind (information, health screening and more?).
Here’s a constantly updated list of community resources.
What else can we do now?
1) If any church member would like a full list of the addresses and phone numbers of those in our church family who are on our prayer list, please let us know and we will email it to you ~ cards and calls are a wonderful source of encouragement.
2) Sharing a Meal is still open although (just like restaurants) meals are takeout only.
Our next scheduled day is Thursday, August 13.
3) Beyond our church, the Greater Sayville Civic Association has compiled a list of local people who are willing to run errands or do pick-ups for people who may be unable to leave their homes. If you are interested please respond to Covidcare.email@example.com.
