Corona Virus Update #9 May 22, 2020Good evening everyone! It’s Ben and it is time for another update. As all of you know Governor Cooper has announced we have officially moved into Phase 2 of reopening. What does this mean for us?
As of now groups of no more than 10 may meet indoors and no more than 50 may meet outdoors. This means that we are still not able or ready to worship together in our sanctuary. A few have asked about us holding a drive-in worship service. At the beginning of the pandemic we made the choice to invest our time and resources into developing an on-line service. This has been a goal of our church for years. An on-line service allows us to worship together now but will also be available when the pandemic passes. A lot of time and investment has been spent on making this goal a reality. It would not be prudent at this time to change the path we are on.
So when will we worship in the sanctuary? I don’t know … yet. The Session is meeting this week and that will be topic #1. There are literally hundreds of big and small decisions and changes that need to be made before we can safely gather together. What I want you to know is that we are preparing now so that when the time comes … we can open the doors and feel safe coming together in a place that we all love.
Let me close by thanking everyone for the support of our Backpack Friends ministry. Over the last two weeks we have collected 210 milk cartons, apple sauce and juice. You folks rock!
Please pray for our country and for each other. See you Sunday as we worship together on-line. Peace and love to us all, Ben
