We are once again facing the need to limit our exposure to one another, and the virus. We are seeing dramatically increasing numbers of cases and hospitalizations in our community. We are seeing the highest numbers in our country since the epidemic began. As good neighbors, citizens who love our community, we need to once again model a way of being safe in our city.
Mountain Sky Conference Bishop Karen Oliveto has released a letter asking the churches of this conference to suspend in person, indoor, worship and fellowship through the end of January (see Bishop’s letter here). We have been making plans to return to some indoor worship services, but we are placing those plans on hold. We had several options for Christmas Eve in mind, but we will no longer pursue an indoor service on that night, much to our sadness.
We will still have our Drive-In services, at the Prairie Campus and the new Heartstrings service downtown, both at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday. We will still offer our televised service and offer all of our services on Facebook and the Website. We will still offer classes and other places of connection and learning. But as of now, we will suspend indoor worship services until at least the end of January 2021. As always, pay close attention to the E-Newsletter, the Website, and the Facebook pages. There are many activities happening.
Know that we want to be together as soon as it is safe and practical. Please read thought the Bishop’s letter. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Even in these difficult days, we have much to be grateful for. In that spirit, enjoy your Thanksgiving and make time to offer your thanks to God for all of the blessings that are ours. I can’t wait to see you face to face.
In Christ’s Service,
