As many of you know, California has reclassified our county as a purple tier. This purple classification restricts churches from meeting indoors. With cold weather, our regular outdoor church just isn’t a viable option for most of us. Thus we will stream our live church service at 11 am.
There is some interest in a Fellowship Hall Patio Church service at 11 am. It would be outdoors. The church service would be streamed live on a big screen TV. But fellowship would still occur for those hardy souls willing to brave some cold. You’d bring your lawn chair, etc. Please check here for a survey to let us know whether or not you would like the church to offer this unique, outdoor service for you and your family to attend. If there is enough interest, we will work on this.
What about Sabbath Schools and prayer meetings? Unfortunately, those too will have to take a break from meeting in-person. For now, we encourage everyone to meet via phone or on zoom, but for now, all in-person meetings will not meet indoors at church. Please check with your Sabbath School Teacher to see if they will meet online/zoom.
I highly encourage everyone to once again renew those personal relationships by connecting with others, whether that be on the phone, zoom, or outdoor home gatherings (weather permitting), etc. We may be distanced from one another, but we can still connect in different ways.
This Covid Restriction is obviously disappointing, although not a surprise. It does do my heart good to know how much we love our church family and find worship with one another sweet. Praise the Lord that we mourn each other’s absence, Amen?!! But times are such that our conference has asked us to comply with the county guidelines. Let us pray that this restricted time is short-lived.
If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to ask. Our office staff will still be available during office hours, and Pastor Andrew and I are available outside office hours.
