Altered Schedule: November 4 – November 18

Hello SMCC Family! 

Our Collinsville area has seen a dramatic increase in positive COVID-19 cases in the last week and several members of our extraordinary family were recently diagnosed with Covid 19. Because of this we are altering our gathering schedule for the next several weeks as a precaution. We will discontinue our Sunday morning and Wednesday evening in person gatherings for the next two weeks. This will allow us the time to thoroughly clean our facilities and for the virus in our area to pass.

We also will not have any extracurricular activities held within the SMCC facility. We will re-evaluate the Covid 19 positive test in our area and communicate to the SMCC congregation any further schedule changes after this time. Please make plans on joining us on Facebook live on Sunday morning at 10:30!
