It is with a heavy heart that I must share with you that Church Council has decided that we will return to online worship exclusively. Today (July 16) Governor DeWine announced that Allen County is now rated red and with that comes the recommendation to limit gatherings of any size. After consulting with other churches in our area ministerial, Council thought it was the wisest course of action to suspend gathering in the building.
We will suspend worship for the next month through August 9, with the hope we can again gather on August 16. Council will make this determination following the Governor’s weekly press conference on Aug. 6—if at that time we have returned to orange or yellow, we will gather on the August 16. However, if we are still at red on Aug. 6—we will not gather on August 16 and Council will continue to monitor the situation.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. This is not the outcome that any of us wanted but regardless of whether we are physically together, we continue to be the body of Christ. At this time of stress and anxiety, I encourage you to keep leaning into Jesus and one another, to pray for our church, our community and the leaders.
Please join us for worship this Sunday on Facebook Live at 10:30 a.m.
Grace and Peace,
