Coronavirus Update (5.23.2020)

Dear Friends,

Your session met Thursday, May 21, to review our current position in regards to reopening the sanctuary and the church buildings. After consideration of the governor’s guidelines for opening for worship, consulting with other members of the ministerial alliance, and discussion of our own situation, the session unanimously decided that the current guidance which goes through May 31 should be extended through June 30. The primary motivation is the desire to continue to keep our church family safe.

In mid-June, the session will again evaluate the situation and act accordingly. In the meantime, a group of elders has been appointed to prepare plans for a phased reopening so that once it is deemed safe to reopen we are prepared to immediately do so.

The session expressed its gratitude to the congregation for its patience and willingness to follow the guidelines in place. It was noted that 40 households are tuning in to worship via “Zoom”. If you would like assistance in connecting with zoom, call the Church Lady (Kim Durkee) at 361.729.6251.

In Christ,

Miles
