The positive tests for COVID-19 are escalating in our area. In light of this, your pastors have spent a considerable amount of time determining what criteria we would use to consider suspending worship services again. We decided on two criteria that would lead us to make that decision - if a staff member tested positive and/or If a volunteer tested positive.
Recently, multiple staff members and volunteers have been exposed. While staff tests were all negative, two of our volunteer’s test results were positive. Considering these circumstances, we have concluded it is in the best interest of our church family and the community to once again move Sunday services online and temporarily suspend all on-site studies. We believe this decision, although difficult, is the wisest course of action. We will evaluate reopening the church as positive cases and hospitalization numbers begin to decline.
Please continue to pray for one another, call one another, and reach out to those who are specifically struggling. Connect with each other through our zoom classes, online prayer meetings, social media and corporate worship services. We know there is no replacement for being together, but these options can help you feel connected.
