Current Phase: 3
In light of the Governor’s press conference today and continued guidance from our state and cities, our regathering worship set for July 18/19 is paused . No new date will bfe set until we are in a position to determine more public health guidance from state and city officials.
As always, since March we have kept the best interests of the entire Body of Christ in mind. If we as a leadership team make any errors, it will be on the side of keeping everyone safe. As your senior pastor, if I have made any errors these past four months, it is in making sure our members and staff are safe.
While we all may be disappointed , never forget that God is good, and I often reflect on my grandparents who in the space of their lifetimes lived through four years of a world war and a pandemic in 1918.
Things will get better, and as Paul wrote from a prison cell, “Rejoice in the Lord always, again, I say rejoice” . Under the threat of prison and death , he still found solace and joy in the Lord of all life. I repeat what I first said in March, “Faith, not fear”.
While I am signing this email, it comes from your entire leadership team and Board of Trustees after consultation this afternoon.

Move to Phase 3
Current Phase: 3
The leadership team, consulting with our Board of Trustees, has moved us into Phase Three as a congregation effective today, June 4. The team has assessed public health in our area and has initiated the gateway to entering this phase.
This means the leadership team is actively engaged and working hard in planning for our Phase Four regathering on site, and hopes to share our regathering date for on-site worship in the very near future. Remember, we are not “reopening” as the church has never closed!
