Sunday Morning Gatherings are on the Web
In times like this it is important for us to remember our church vision statement: "We strive to embody and express the love of God in our world.” Throughout church history the church has been known to step up in times of crises and be a testimony of love and care to the communities it finds itself in. This is not a time to retreat, but a time to be creative in how we engage with one another, worship together and care for our community. Here are some of the ways we are striving to love and care for our community in the midst of the spread of COVID-19:
Caring for our community by taking precautions seriously
The church board has decided that pausing our Sunday morning gatherings for the time being is one of the ways we can demonstrate our love and care for our community. While we are not able to meet together, we can still be creative in how we worship in our homes. There will be a Sunday Morning Worship packet distributed online for those would like to still worship together in spirit.
Our youth and young adult groups will also be taking precautions in the way they meet together. All gatherings will require hand washing and appropriate distancing. The youth are already getting creative in ways they can be together but at a distance from each other.
We are also postponing social events which would involve close interaction. The baby shower that was planned for Monday the 23rd and the Chilli Cookoff for Saturday the 28th are postponed.
Caring for our community by checking on and providing for others in times of need
While we have all been encouraged to socially distance ourselves physically, we should not socially distance ourselves verbally. Now more than ever is the time to pick up our phones and connect with each other. Church, after all, is a group of people, not a building or a Sunday morning gathering. Let us see this time as an opportunity for us to grow deeper together as a community who doesn’t just connect on Sundays but throughout the week.
Now is also the time for us to pay attention to who in our community is in need as a result of COVID-19. Some people might lose their jobs, some people will need childcare, some people will need groceries. If you are in need or if you know of someone in need please let Pastor Stephen know so we can all help out together. Let us be creative in the ways we can support one another.
