A MESSAGE FROM DR. BRIAN ANDERSON:
If there is any “silver lining” to this pandemic period, it is that we have all had opportunities to explore how to do things differently – “to think outside the box”. But, I am delighted to report that on Sunday, October 4, we will resume in-person worship services in our sanctuary.
I’m asking for your help and cooperation with special measures we are planning to use in order to do our best to keep each other safe and sound. An outline of all these measures is available by clicking here to download.
One of the things I want to highlight is registering with the church office by Thursday of your plan to attend the upcoming in-person Sunday worship service. [So for Oct. 4, please register by Oct 1 for the service.] Our purpose in asking this is not to turn people away but quite the opposite – to avoid having to turn people away. If we find that we do not have the space available to seat everyone while practicing social distancing, we will offer multiple services. But we will only know this if we have an accurate idea of who is planning to attend in person ahead of time.
So, let’s do everything possible to protect one another while having the privilege of worshiping together again, the people of God gathered in the house of God.
If you are not feeling well, have specific medical concerns that put you at higher risk, or if you are uncertain or anxious about attending worship, please continue to stay home. The Sunday worship service will be recorded and available on our web site and on a DVD/CD on Monday following the Sunday service. We will also continue to provide the Thoughtful Tuesday video message weekly.
The church office is open Monday – Thursday 8 AM – 1 PM for any of your individual needs
and prayers. You may contact us at 623-977-4241, firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit in
person, if necessary, for any needs. We recognize that we are a community of higher-risk individuals. Please use your own judgement about visiting the office or church services and meetings, and practice social distancing. Face masks are required when inside the building.
Contributions may be mailed to the church or you can make a one-time or recurring donation online. You may also drop them off in person during office hours.
Please pray for
those around the world who have been infected and affected by COVID-19 and pray
that this uncertain time may be an occasion for Gospel proclamation.
