IN PERSON WORSHIP BEGINS JUNE 28

It is with great joy and great caution that we invite those who are able to return to worship in our sanctuary beginning Sunday, June 28, 10:00. The Session has approved the safety protocols proposed by our Safe Gatherings Committee and we look forward to worshiping together, in person. At the same time, we realize many of our members need to worship at home to keep themselves and their family members safe and well. We strongly encourage them to do that and we support them in this choice. Our online worship services will continue. This wonderful resource allows us to enjoy the same worship experience at the same time whether we are at home or in the sanctuary. This manner of shared worship experience is not our first choice, but it is meaningful and worthwhile in many ways and it makes it possible for us to continue our faith journey together while keeping everyone safe.

FROM PASTOR BILL

We will continually evaluate the risks and benefits of offering limited, in-person worship services and will make changes, if needed. It may be that as conditions change, we will return to online only worship services or we may add additional in-person opportunities. 


Our goal is to offer a safe worship experience for those who are able and would like to worship in the sanctuary with others. We realize that those in higher risk groups and families who need child care will continue to rely on the online services. 


As we move through this pandemic, we pray for protection for all, for a vaccine, and for a cure. We are listening for God’s voice and know that God is present with us in this difficult time. As always, please share your needs and concerns with us. It’s important that we continue reaching out to each other with words of encouragement and hope. We are God’s hands and feet. We experience God’s love through one another as we live in community in this new way.


Peace and blessings to you,

Bill
