Brothers and sisters,
you know, we have been dealing with several cases of COVID in our
church family. Please be in prayer for those who have tested positive
and those who have been exposed.
The elders would like to provide
direction as we respond to the higher number of cases affecting our
church. As far as we know, by God's grace, so far no one has contracted
the virus at church. For that we are grateful.
If you are
feeling fine and have not been exposed to anyone who has tested positive
for COVID, we encourage you to come and worship with us on Sundays.
If you are not feeling well, please stay home. We encourage you to be careful and think of others.
If you have been exposed to someone else with COVID, please follow the CDC guidelines.
you are staying home because of your specific health concerns, we miss
you! And we look forward to seeing you once you are able to return in
person. Until then, we continue to try to minister to you online, by
phone, or in any other way possible. If there is something we can do to
care for you, please let one of the elders know.
If you had to
isolate because you had COVID or because you were exposed to someone
with COVID, once you have been cleared to return, come back to church.
We would like to end with a passage that the Lord gave us at the elder retreat. Hebrews 10:24-25 says:
let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not
neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging
one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
We love you and are praying for you.
-Pastor Sergei on behalf of the elders
