Hear an important update about worship services:
We reopened for in-person worship during the weekend of August 1 & 2. We have done well with following necessary protocol to keep everyone safe. But with rising COVID numbers in our community, and with exposure to our pastoral staff (thankfully the pastors tested negative), we are reminded of our need to lead with humility and responsibility.
Beginning November 15th, we will be moving our 9:00 and 10:45am Sunday worship services to online only. We will continue to hold our parking lot service at noon, where you can come in person and worship in the comfort of your vehicle. Over the next few weeks, we will continue to reevaluate the viability of in-person worship.
To be clear, we want our church to be open. We long to be together in worship, mission, and ministry. That being said, we are also obligated by the essential message of the gospel: putting love in action. As we strive to imitate Christ, we want to reach people in a way that honors and protects the image of God in one another.
The founder of the Methodist Church, John Wesley, advocated three simple rules for the Christian life: do no harm, do good, and stay in love with God.
We recognize that we have sent out quite a few announcements in recent days. Thank you for bearing with us as situations change so rapidly. We also know that this time has been particularly challenging. If there are any needs you have, we want to offer you ministry. We are thankful to have staff who have been able to provide innovative ways of continuing ministry. And please know that your financial giving to our mission is allowing our church to move ahead without yet having to cut staff or essential ministries.
Please be sure to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. May God continue to guide us as we carry on our mission in this new and challenging time.
