As we approach Christmas and the New Year, I’d like to take some time to discuss a couple of things that will impact our church as we move forward.
I’ll start with the bad news first. We are in the thick of a resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic and there has been a worrying trend, especially in our church, as of late. While masks are not required and I am not going to police you on the decision you make, I would like to warn of the consequences. I’ve noticed a downward trend in mask wearing. Now is not the time to relax,
we must remain vigilant. With the current distribution of mask wearing, if anyone at church on a Sunday was infected, I would have to make the choice to close the church for two weeks minimum for the safety of the congregation. This decision might not have to happen if more people would mask up. Being an older congregation, I am acutely aware of the danger that COVID-19 presents. If you have not yet been vaccinated, please do as quickly as you can. This is one of the easiest ways we can protect ourselves and by extension our families and our church. Remember, we are doing this for our neighbors and loved ones as we are tasked by Christ to care for one another.
Now that the bad news is out of the way, on to times of celebration! We will be having the normal Christmas Eve service at its regular time of 7:00pm. Additionally, we’ve been invited to worship with Sycamore Creek Church at Woldumar Nature Center on Thursday, December 23. There are two special events happening with this worship service. First, there is an opportunity for children to be involved in the telling of the Christmas Story. So, grandparents go get you grandkids ready for this one! It is always adorable! Second, Sycamore Creek will be celebrating my licensure as a local pastor. My journey towards ministry started with Sycamore Creek and being able to celebrate this with both them and all of you means the world to me! Look for more information in the coming weeks about the service and ways to get involved.
