I realize that this will cause some sadness for many of you, and some may feel this measure is perhaps unnecessary, but our church polity places responsibility for such decisions in the hands of the Session, your elected representative leaders. (For the record, I support them fully.) It is out of concern for your safety that they have made this decision.
I look forward to seeing you online this Sunday at 11:00 AM as we worship our Lord!
This is the 2nd Sunday after Epiphany, and also a celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday (bulletin link here).
May your New Year be full of joy and blessings! 2021 has been a busy and eventful year - let us hope and pray that 2022 brings us a year of God's grace, an end to the pandemic, an end to war, hunger and violence, and more of Christ's reign on earth. This is our mission, and for this reason we gather and worship.
Grace and peace in Christ to all of you -
"Welcoming, diverse and filled with the Holy Spirit."
