An Update on Worship and Public Gatherings

An Update on Worship and Public Gatherings

The elders and deacons met online Tuesday evening, March 31, to reassess our plans regarding public worship services, Bible studies, and other gatherings.  At the present time all worship services and other public church activities will remain suspended until further notice.

This decision was not made lightly. We know how important our gathered worship and fellowship is to our life as the body of Christ. We do believe, however, that this is the wisest decision to make at this time. We have made this decision out of love for you, love for our neighbors, and in an endeavor to follow the guidelines of those in authority over us (Rom. 13:1–7). This was a unanimous decision supported by all of the elders and deacons.

The elders and deacons will be meeting online weekly to give and receive reports on how the congregation is doing as well as spend time together in prayer for you. This will occur each Tuesday at 7:00 pm. If you have concerns you would like noted and prayed for, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or your shepherding elder with that information.

Although we are apart for a while, we are still the church. We are still the people of God. We are still a family. We are here for you.

Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies continue virtually. If you have not been a part of those groups but would like to be, please let me know. I encourage you to use the technology the Lord has given us and meet with church friends online via Zoom, Google Hangouts, FaceTime, etc.

Stay tuned for more updates, and please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
