Over these last four months, we have yearned for the time when we can again worship and assemble together in our church. We have longed to hear the children’s voices on during the pick up and drop off of our education ministry.
In the meantime, we have adapted. We have worshipped on-line, gathered on zoom calls, assembled outside for worship, moved summer children’s ministry to the outdoors and even held a Trustees meeting in the parking lot. We have fed the hungry through partnerships with area churches. As your pastor, I have cautiously approached all these missional decisions in an effort to care for the health of both physical body and spiritual soul during a pandemic. They didn’t teach pandemics in seminary, as I often remind myself. But they did teach that God provides a pillar in the cloud, a light on the path, and a fire in the heart to guide and rekindle us.
Behind the scenes has been the work of the Re-Entry Task Force. Informed by denominational resources, data from Centers of Disease Control, and direction from state and county governing agencies, we have been in continual discernment over the last months. Weighing every option, and guided in prayer, we now set forth our next stages of reopening.
Below is an outline for staggered re-opening of the buildings for worship, children’s ministry, education, small groups and administrative council. By taking these steps, we reduce the risk to each other and the community at large.
