Family of God,
The Session has been meeting regularly to discuss and pray about engaging in our ministry with you and our community during this unprecedented time of staying at home. We have also taken under advisement all of the recommendations from local, state, and national officials as well as our denomination regarding how and when to reopen our facilities and return to worshiping together in our sanctuary. We are also aware the directions from local officials change often so we are attempting to stay in compliance with all guidance to ensure safety for our church members, staff, facility users, and community.
We suspended all church programming and all church facility users suspended their activities in our building beginning March 13th. We have made alternative worship and Christian Education resources available to our congregation via postal mail, Zoom meetings, and video broadcasts. This has been a major adjustment for all of us. Our entire community is affected. We have been keeping you informed in multiple ways via Facebook, phone, email, texts, and postal mail. Our Session and church staff have done our best to keep everyone up to date.
The Session met on Monday, May 11th on a Zoom video call. The decision was made to keep our facilities closed through at least June 4th when the stay-at-home order is up for renewal for our county. We are suspending in-person in-sanctuary worship through at least mid-August. We will continue to worship online. This is a very different way of worshiping for now, but we want to continue to protect one another.
Vacation Bible School will now be held virtually using Zoom. All VBS families and volunteers will be contacted soon with more info as to how this will occur. We are also now holding occasional fellowship times via Zoom and on May 24th we will have virtual Sunday School for children. Invitations to these virtual events will be sent out as needed.
Please pray for one another. Stay in touch. Share the Good News of healing found in our Lord Jesus Christ. Reach out to any of our church leaders if you have any questions.
In the name of Christ,
Rev. Cynthia Betz-Bogoly
