“I want to give you an update on where we are in our transition back to some normalcy at church. The staff and I have prayed and we don’t feel comfortable starting Life Groups back yet. We encourage your class to find creative ways to meet. We suggest Zoom, gathering at someone’s house or a restaurant or having an outdoor get together to stay in touch. Understand there is more involved in this decision than you realize. When we start Life Groups back, it involves opening up the nursery, preschool and children’s classes and we all know that kids don’t know how to social distance themselves. We still have Life Group teachers who haven’t come back to worship yet so there will be no Life Groups the month of June.
We have decided to continue Wednesday night worship online through the month of June and we encourage you to join us. Nothing is more discouraging than to only have a handful of people join us for worship when we have prayed and prepared a message.
Finally, with great sadness we report to you that we have decided to cancel Vacation Bible School this summer. There are too many unknowns, variables, hoops to jump through and risks involved. Many of our volunteers are considered high risk and we don’t want to compromise their health or our children’s health. Plus we don’t know if we would even be able to recruit enough volunteers to help.
So for the time being, we are going to continue to have live worship on Sunday mornings at 9 and 11 am. Don’t feel any guilt or pressure to come but as you feel comfortable, we invite you to come back.
Every day the suggested procedures, precautions, and instructions change as do the numbers so we are constantly re-evaluating our plans and strategy.
Through all of this, I want you to understand God is in control and He will see us through these trying times. Understand that we have your health, safety and well-being at the heart of every decision we make. Thanks for your patience, understanding and cooperation. We love you and God bless you!”
