It is amazing how quickly
things change! Not long after we sent
out the last update the government came out with updated recommendations for
gatherings – indicating they recommend no gatherings larger than 10 people. Although it was also clear that we don’t have
to be “exacting” in these numbers, we realize that there is “method” to their
With that in mind, we ask that you use caution and prayerfully consider other options rather than meet in larger groups. When considering getting together with family, church family or friends, please consider the recommendations made by the professionals.
Unfortunately, pretty much all church services are being cancelled (including ours) until an undetermined time. So, we will continue to communicate via email, Facebook and our website.
We have decided to try live streaming and recording our messages. We will begin this Sunday with the message to begin at 10:30. We will try to send out some recommendations on how to make the most of a home worship time in preparation for listening to the message. We will send the link out later for you to join the live stream this Sunday.
We do have food pantry scheduled for next Wednesday, March 25. Rather than have the food pantry operate as normal, we will provide a “drive up” service, with the food items already bagged. We will need additional volunteers. This is a great opportunity for those who are at “lower risk” to volunteer and help our community. If you are healthy and show no signs of sickness, will you please consider volunteering? Please contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help next week.
Although this is a challenging time, it is also a time for the church to “rise up” and be an example to those around us. If you have other ideas on how to serve those who are high risk and should not get out please let us know.
Let us all take courage and rest in the peace we have in the Lord Jesus Christ during these difficult times.
"These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world." John 16:33
