Dear Friends,

As we move into these times of social distancing, Friends in SCYM are finding ways to help each other deal with social distancing and the effects of the disease on indiviuals and meetings. 

The one family in SCYM that reported that one member had tested positive for COVID19 report they are now recovering nicely. They are trying to rest and so, while they appreciate your prayers, they are staying annonymous. More news of SCYM Friends will be posted as we have it. 

A new fall date for SCYM 2020 Yearly Meeting Sessions is confirmed as September 24-27, 2020. Watch here for more details.

All are invited to worship virtually online: All Yearly Meeting Wednesday Mid-Week Worship, 7-8pm (connect at 6:30 for tech help) and with SCYM Monthly Meetings on Sunday, March 29, 2020. Please click "read more" for details.
