+The Peace of Christ be with you always…
O how I long to hear your response, “And also with you!”
Our Congregational Council met this past Sunday to consider when and how we might begin again to offer in-person worship in our sanctuary. I don’t believe any of us felt pressured, or even any real sense of urgency around the issue, but we approached it more with a spirit of discernment, seeking how God might be showing us when the right time might be. It was in that spirit that the council came to the unanimous decision to begin offering face to face worship on July 5 at 10:30.
As I hope you read last week, we are committed to continue offering worship options, adding worship in the sanctuary to our current parking lot and on-line offerings. In recognition that it is getting hotter earlier, we will slide parking lot church to 9:00 am and insert sanctuary worship at 10:30, all beginning July 5. Our hope is that everyone will have a worship option with which they can feel comfortable.
In the coming weeks we’ll be providing details of what you can expect if you choose to worship in the sanctuary, both what others will be doing, and what you will be asked to do or not do. Our goal is to make worship feel as safe and familiar and inviting as we possibly can. Your first question may be about communion, and I am in the process of finalizing how we can begin celebrating the Holy Meal again. Please look for more information in the very near future.
Until then, let’s be reminded, and remind one another, that we are all children of a loving and faithful Heavenly Father. He has promised to be with us always, even to the end of the age. Let us rest and rely confidently on God’s promises, now and always.
