COVID-19 UPDATE April 30, 2020

Hello Church Family,

I want to give you an update in light of changes announced by our governing authorities that affect our church.

We have been under a “shelter in place” order for several weeks. During these days, we have canceled on-site worship services, ministries, and other gatherings. We have offered a Sunday morning online worship experience and many of our Bible Study classes have connected with one another online as well. I want to thank you for supporting these changes in our way of doing church.

This “shelter in place” order has been lifted, allowing certain businesses to open under strict guidelines. While our church has always been able to meet, we have chosen not to for one main reason—to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. This is still my main concern.

I have visited about next steps with our ministry staff as well as a cross section of our lay leaders. I asked them to consider not “what we can do” but “what we should do.” We all agreed we should continue with our present way of doing church. So, for the month of May, we will continue to offer a Sunday online worship experience. Our Bible Study classes and groups will continue to connect online.

Our governor is scheduled to address this gradual opening of our state on May 18. So, we will watch and wait to see what will happen next. Our return to gathering together should be based on sound medical information, not just our desire to be with one another.

I know this is not what we want or desire. But I cannot in good conscience suggest we return to “church as we want it” when uncertainty still surrounds us.

So, I ask you to continue to be prayerful during these days. Practice good hygiene. Practice social distancing. And let’s all look forward to the day when we can connect face to face.

And by the way, I want to invite you to Drive-In Church on Sunday, May 17. We will use the back parking lot as our worship center. I’m serious. Our city has given us the green light to park our vehicles in every other parking space. You will tune your radio to a “to be announced” FM signal. Our band will lead us from the roof of the children’s atrium. So, in a sense, we can worship together. Help us fill up the parking lot on Sunday, May 17, at 10am. And big trucks must park on the back row. 🙂

I look forward to worshiping and sharing God’s Word with you this Sunday at 10am.
