The future is unknown and constantly changing. These are difficult days for everyone in leadership. The church has been put in a hard place. The emotional & physical impact of this pandemic is staggering. We have seen suicide, substance abuse & divorce rates rise in our community and in our nation. Because of these rates, we believe the church is essential now more than ever. Your mental health matters to us. This is why we are continuing in person gatherings at 9am & 11am.
At the same time, your physical health is equally as important to us. We want to protect everyone, and especially the most vulnerable. We are are implementing better social distancing standards and will be taking temperatures upon entry. We are strongly recommending that you wear a mask. We are better together. We ask that you adhere by the guidelines out of love & respect for others. Again, these are unprecedented times and we want to prioritize your mental and physical health.
We have created multiple options with your comfort and safety in mind. So, it’s up to you! If you are sick, vulnerable or just not comfortable meeting in person - we understand. We encourage you to stay home & join us online. Our online congregation is equally as important as our in person congregation. We are one body. We are working hard to create an online experience that is memorable & engaging.
If you are going to continue joining us in person - we ask that you adhere to the guidelines & take this seriously. We want to continue meeting & need your help in ensuring everyone stays safe.
This was not an easy decision to make. We are prioritizing your safety, comfort and mental health. We hope that you understand & will join us in constant prayer as we navigate this difficult time.
Love you, Church Family!
