A lifetime ago — I mean, a month ago — we wrote a message inform you that the church would be closed through March 31. Forty-eight hours later, we suspended all in-person church activities until May 10. Then, last Friday, Governor Scott wisely extended the “stay at home” order through May 15.
So, when will we worship again in our sanctuary? We don’t know.
Here is what we can say: we will worship in our sanctuary when the CDC and state authorities deem it reasonably safe for large groups to gather. And, when that date comes into view, you will know. In fact, there’s a decent chance you will hear us shouting it from the bell tower!
For now, we want to share a few updates:
- We will celebrate Holy Communion during our worship-by-ZOOM on May 3rd. More details to come.
- Over the next two weeks, your pastors will post on our church’s Facebook page a series of short, recorded reflections on Communion: www.facebook.com/MiddUCC/
- In preparation for an extended period of online worship services, we can offer our current preaching schedule:
- April 19, Elizabeth Gleich
- April 26, Andy Nagy-Benson
- May 3, Andy Nagy-Benson
- May 10, Elizabeth Gleich
- May 17, Lindsey Franklin
- May 24, Andi Lloyd
- May 31, Andy Nagy-Benson
We miss you and love you and pray for your good health.
God bless you,
Pastor Andy and Pastor Elizabeth
