Church Council Update: Worship in July

July 3, 2020

Church News

Church Council had a special meeting on Tuesday evening to consider our status relative to holding services during the ongoing pandemic. It was a unanimous consensus that we should not at this time attempt to hold indoor worship services. This decision was made in light of rising numbers of cases in and around our county and out of concern for the safety of worshippers and worship leaders.

It is Council’s decision to “stay the course” with continuing to offer outdoor services in Shellenberger Park (weather permitting) as well as the virtual online and telephone services. Again, these decisions are not easy. We appreciate the feedback received from many of you. We have given prayerful consideration of the wide range of comfort levels and opinions. Each and every member and friend of our congregation is precious to us.
We are continuing to develop plans for what an indoor service might include for that time when we can once again worship together indoors with a reasonable feeling of safety. Church Council will continue to monitor changes in the number of cases as well as guidelines from reputable sources and authorities. The next scheduled meeting of Council is July 21. Please continue to monitor our website and Facebook pages for updates.
Please keep our church leaders in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to discern the appropriate measures, precautions, and ways to meet your faith needs and expectations.
