I wanted to write a quick note here about the next three Sundays—January 2, 9, and 16. Due to the rise of the Omicron variant and the increased travel that has happened over the last two weeks, the Regathering Team and I felt it best to go virtual for the next few weeks. That means that we will livestream our 11:00 am worship services on our church’s website January 2, 9, and 16. Sunday School classes will not meet at the church. Your Sunday School teachers will be in touch with you about what Sunday School will look like for these three weeks.
We felt we ought to do this as a proactive step to make sure that we do not unintentionally spread Covid within our congregation. Many of us have traveled and been around groups of people we’re not normally around very much. We hope that no one in our congregation has picked up Covid. We hope that we can come back to in-person services on the 23rd with no problems. But we think it is best, in the interest of safety, to take some time for folks to stay home, see if they show symptoms, and, if they do, get the treatment they need.
Again, I’m hoping to see all of you in person on January 23rd! Until then, remember that a church is not a building—it’s a group of people coming together to worship God.
Grace and peace,
