Announcements

Members and Friends of Emmanuel,

Given the recent spike in Covid-19 positivity in our area, and on the strong recommendation of our Bishop, Patricia Davenport, the Church Council agreed this week that we will have worship services “Online Only” for at least four Sundays, beginning November 29. This is not something we want to do, especially given the coming season of Advent, but it is the prudent decision to keep people safe at this time.

We will be suspending in-person indoor worship service until at least Christmas.

This is not new ground for us; we worshiped online only from March 15 through the end of August. We remain hopeful that this current pause from in-person worship will be short. Because it is Advent, I think it is appropriate that we find other ways in which to observe this period of waiting – which has additional significance this year. In the next week, I will announce a mid-week online worship service, as well as an opportunity for online bible study, all with Advent themes. I pray that this will deepen our Advent spirituality as we look once again to the arrival of Emmanuel – the God With Us!

This announcement applies to indoor worship services only. The E-Meal Ministry, and other small group ministries will continue to be welcomed with appropriate safety precautions.

Of course, please continue to follow ongoing communications for further announcements. We have learned these past months that things change so quickly, and we need to be ready to pivot on short notice.

Please pray that this spike in virus cases passes quickly, and the long-promised vaccine comes soon.

Peace. +PJ+
