COVID-19 Update from Pastor Chuck

Dear Friends,

I’ve been waiting a long time to update you in a way that includes us returning to indoor worship and that day has finally arrived! Your patience and support through all this has been a blessing and we are grateful!

We have set our return date for June 14! Some may wonder, "why this date?". We want to make sure we have everything in place to return well! We are almost there! We also chose this date so that I can be present on that first Sunday back; I’ll be on vacation May 31 & June 7.

June 14 is also our anniversary Sunday and we are looking at ways to make that day a special one! We will NOT be having a covered dish meal or a sit-down meal in the building, but look for more details in the coming days about what this day will hold!

Until that day, we will be holding services on the lawn at 9:00 AM to help us beat the heat! We invite you to bring chairs or blankets to sit on to worship together! If you do not want to sit in a chair or on a blanket, you will also be able to come to the church and participate in the service from your car as we will transmit through your radio! We will also continue streaming if you feel like you need to stay home and worship!

Sunday School classes will continue meeting on Zoom for now and we will re-evaluate that regularly. Sunday school meeting times for the next three weeks will be determined by each class and what works best for them!

Pastor Kevin and Pastor Steven will continue virtual Children’s & Student Ministries to stay involved with our students and children, but for now we feel it best to wait to reinstate children’s or youth ministry on Sundays. We hope to have those running again soon! We will re-evaluate that regularly as well!

Even though we have not been able to gather in person, our mission remains the same…Lead people to love Jesus! As we re-gather again let’s recommit ourselves to going and telling what Jesus has done for us and in us and continue inviting them to come and see what He is doing in our church!

Again, thank you for continuing to be the church throughout this event! I look forward to seeing what God has done and what He will do as we move forward in the future!

Blessings,

Pastor Chuck
