Hello church family!
I have some important information for you as we head into June.
First, we will be opening our church doors and holding our worship service inside the building on June 14. This is exciting news for some and anxious news for others. Some in our church family are not yet comfortable with this and others have to be cautious for their own health. We want to be compassionate and understanding of their choice to take precaution if they come or to wait to attend church in person until a later time. So you will receive follow-up communication about guidelines that will be necessary to observe for a while. These guidelines are a way that we can show love to our brothers and sisters in Christ and any visitors present. Even though it will be a while before everything is back to normal, it will be a blessing to worship our Lord Jesus together!
Second, it is the time of year to approve a budget for the next fiscal year. On June 14, a copy of the 2020-2021 budget will be available for you to pick up so that you will have two weeks to inquire of the elders about any specifics concerning it. On June 28, we will remain after the worship service to vote on the new budget. Because of the current need to be cautious when we gather, this year will be different from past years. We will not have a meal on the day of the budget meeting.
It will be some time before things are back to normal, but we are slowly and carefully transitioning. We will get there, and when we arrive, there will be much that the Lord has taught us through all of this. Until then, please continue to pray for our church family: for health, safety, peace of heart and mind, and that in this unique trial we come to know Christ more intimately.
Stay tuned for details!
