State of California Re-Closes Worship Gatherings.

As you are aware, this week the State and County have mandated re-closing many public gatherings and activities including church worship services. We are responding to this mandate.

Many in our congregation have attended services online via Zoom during the coronavirus closure from March forward, and, in fact, have continued to participate via Zoom even as we have simultaneously opened the sanctuary for physical attendance.

The re-closure hits hardest for those who do not have online access and have not been able to participate in congregational life since March, and began coming out and attending since the last Sunday of June when we reopened the sanctuary.

If you have previously participated in our Sunday mornings via Zoom, we ask you to return to or continue with Zoom. For those without online access, the church doors will be unlocked and the Zoom-based worship service will be projected on screen via computer video and audio in a “watch and listen” only format.  The worship service will be led remotely, so as to comply with the mandate.

Thank you for your intercession as we navigate these dicey days.

The old Gaither Trio song speaks to our concerns today:

I don’t know about tomorrow;
I just live from day to day.
I don’t borrow from its sunshine
For it’s skies may turn to grey.

I don’t worry o’er the future,
For I know what Jesus said.
And today I’ll walk beside Him,
For He knows what is ahead.

Many things about tomorrow
I don’t seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
and I know who holds my hand.

Loving you and praying for you,
Pastor Lyn
