Why We Are Not Meeting in Person

The rapid spread and potentially serious effects of the COVID-19 disease have prompted the Board of Deacons to cease worshiping in person for at least two weeks, March 19 and 26, 2020. We plan to offer a worship experience via live video over the Internet. We will send more information later this week when we have had an opportunity to test it and can provide a working address. We will be sending this information to the Weekly Chime subscriber list. If you need to be informed some other way, please call the office at 935-1283.

The Board of Deacons notes that the course of the pandemic cannot be predicted at this time, and we will review the situation in the coming days. If necessary, we may not gather for worship for longer than two weeks.

Pastor Eric writes, “This situation makes my heart ache. Being together in the worship of God is a lift to the heart and to the spirit. This is a time to care for our neighbors, however, and one of the ways we care for them is to slow the course of this pandemic. We will have to join our spirits in prayer as best we can via this poor substitute until the day arrives when we can celebrate God’s grace together once more.”

In addition, Bible studies and the Search for Wisdom program will not be held. Choir will not rehearse. Please check with the organizers of other groups and events to learn their plans.

A prayer for this week:

We will miss being together with you this coming week, O God.  Let your grace span the distance we place between us to maintain our health and unite our hearts in compassionate praise. Amen.
