Today is a “Snow Day...”

Hello Friends,
The Session (board) of Marshall Presbyterian Church has declared Sunday, September 13, as a "snow day" because Pastor Melissa took this past week as Study Leave. Not only did she do some reading, she set up a Zoom account to which worship will be moved at month end. With Zoom, you will be able to see and interact with one another online. Those who have no computer or have sketchy internet service can call in to the "meeting." You will receive a Robocall with more information.
Meanwhile, NEXT Sunday, September 20, worship will be at the church in the parking lot that has the ramp. This will be a communion service. Please wear a masque and observe social distancing. You can park in the Town of Marshall lot or in the lot on the Tag Office side of the building.

A message from Elizabeth Gullum to the community:

Dear Friends and Family across the country, Madison County schools is preparing for the first weeks of school to be remote learning. We have had a 50% increase in cases here and also an infant and a school age child affected, and so our District has made the tough call to begin distance learning. While those of you who live in urban areas, may not be able to relate, we are a large, rural, remote community with limited WiFi access and a large number of our school families do not have devices (chrome books or iPads) for their children to utilize during the school year. If you have a device that you aren’t using, please consider donating it to our schools. I will cover the cost of your shipping. We are a beautiful county, with hard working families, and we need help! Our Fifth Graders placed first in the state in Reading, Math and Science last year! A remarkable accomplishment given the challenges our teachers face. Please if you are able, send us your old devices, it could change a child’s life. Thank you.
