A Message from Pastor Andy – March 14th update
Based on the most current epidemiological information, it is clear to me that we need to do more to slow the spread of the virus and to take additional steps to love our neighbors as ourselves. Our congregation has a long-standing and ongoing commitment to serve the most vulnerable people in the broader community, and it’s time for us to do that in a new way.
To that end, I am writing to inform you that the church will be closed, effective immediately, through March 31. If things change for the better, we will happily revise this plan. And, if the situation becomes more serious in the coming weeks, we will extend the duration of the closure.
Live stream worship beginning March 15 at 10:00 a.m.
Beginning Sunday March 15th and for the next three Sundays, we will offer a live-stream worship service at 10:00 a.m. on our Facebook page.
But, again, all in-person, group activities are postponed until month’s end. This includes morning and afternoon worship services, choir rehearsals, the Vision 2020 small group gatherings, Junior and Senior High Youth Group meetings, All Boards, the informational meeting for prospective new members, and much more.
As you can imagine, there are many unanswered questions that our church staff and lay leaders need to address, and we are working hard to do so.
Let’s all do what we can to attend to the ties that bind us, one to another, in the weeks ahead.
Grace and Peace,
