Dear Church family,
Starting this Sunday, we will be moving our services outside, weather permitting. We will be gathering at 9 and 10:30am outside under a tent for worship services. We will also continue to stream our services online as well as broadcast our services via our FM radio station to the parking lot.
There are reasons we are making this shift in our service location, the two most important being that more and more event organizations are being asked to hold gatherings outside to take advantage of the fresh airflow, and as with every decision we have made, this gives us another opportunity to be compassionate and show concern for our community and for each other. We will have chairs set up for worship this week, but if you prefer to bring your own chair or a blanket that will be fine.
While we will be outside, we will continue to do our best to follow the recommendations from our local health officials. So, please be respectful of the people around you and give plenty of space.
I want to say thank you for your cooperation with us during the last several weeks. About 12 weeks ago you were reminded, “that blessed are the flexible for they will not be bent out of shape”. For the most part our church family has been very flexible during this difficult time. When I hear about the difficulty other churches are experiencing right now, it makes me all the more thankful for our church family.
Let me remind you again that our regathering plan is a process, and these inconveniences we are experiencing are temporary. We may not be where we desire to be, but hopefully we will get there soon.
I have full confidence that we as a church will continue to handle our current situation in a way that honors God, first and foremost, and shows concern and compassion for our community. For that reason, I am confident that our best days as a church are just around the corner.
Live stream video will be available on our website, Facebook, and our church app for the 9:00 and10:30 services. On-demand video will be available after the 10:30 service on our website and our YouTube channel.
