Dear Peace Friends and Family,
If you have been watching or reading the news lately, the rise in new COVID cases has probably not escaped you. For your church board this is concerning, as we value the health of every single individual and carry the knowledge that some of us have not been able to get vaccinated yet, most notably our children. Because we wish to be proactive in our consideration of how we hold worship, we met today to consider our options and to create a solid plan for moving forward. With the wisdom and guidance of medical professionals in our midst we concluded that the most responsible course of action is to resume online worship until after Labor Day and reevaluate the situation at that time. We will be carefully watching the COVID trends and use science and reason to guide our next steps.
It may feel difficult to go back to online services so soon after we resumed gathering in person, but we believe it would be far harder to cope with the knowledge that some of us became ill after meeting live. As Pastor Christen illustrated for us in today’s message, walking together and supporting one another as we go will get us all to the finish line.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
Peace and Blessings,
