In conversation with those in church leadership, it has been decided that we will not be holding worship services on May 31st.
- The stay at home order was extended until June 12th
- There are legitimate concerns about the transmission of the virus from people traveling and celebrating during the Memorial Day weekend.
- A number of people indicated that they were not yet comfortable with returning to church even if worship services are held.
- Also, consideration must be given to fact that many of us are over 65 years of age, or otherwise more susceptible to complications from this illness
While I know some of you would definitely come, and I know there is a frustration in saying not yet, we are actively and cautiously working to arrive at that time when we can return.
One of the central works of Jesus ministry was the healing of those who were sick. We are not wandering from that purpose as we work to ensure the health and wellbeing of our congregation. I am anxious to return, as I know you are, but we do well to exercise patience. Take time to listen for God’s voice in your life during these slower moments. God is always present and may have a particular word for you.
I will keep you informed of our future plans for returning as they are made.
