Beloved Church Family,
As you may have noticed when looking at the weather report, we’re expected to get a fair bit of rain this weekend, which calls into question outdoor worship!
Fear not, your trusty board and worship committee and staff have created an alternate plan to keep you all safe and dry! We will CONTINUE TO HAVE WORSHIP AT 9:00 AM as scheduled), but we will be moving INSIDE the sanctuary a week early. Because worship has already been planned, and worship bulletins printed, it will still be a shorter service, but we all determined it was better to be dry!
The sanctuary is still not quite ready for us…you’ll notice a little dust and smell a little must (the plan has been for this next week to give it a thorough clean and get the air vented out a bit to clean out the musty smell, but we don’t have that kind of advance notice).
So, no need to pack your lawn chairs. INSTEAD, be sure to bring your face masks. (If you don’t have one, we will have a box of disposal ones on-hand.) It is imperative for all over the age of 8 to wear them inside the building since our younger children have not been vaccinated, and since we will still be singing (I know, singing in masks is the worst, but we have to maintain careful safety until all have access to vaccinations).
It won’t be quite the triumphant Sunday I was looking forward to our first day back in the sanctuary, but it is the right thing to do. And what matters MOST is that we are together, and that we are safe, and that we are sheltered.
Please, please pass the word to any you know who are not online. We’ll also be sharing this via the prayer chain.
See you Sunday at 9:00. (we’ll return to our 10:15 time next Sunday and continue with that time here on out…).
Peace and love,
