UPDATE – March 16, 2020
The Church Council is aware of the new recommendations from the CDC. In short, they are recommending that “for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more.”
The Council will be having an emergency meeting this week (Tuesday) to determine how we will move forward.
As of 5:32PM on March 12, 2020
All church activities are scheduled to continue as normal. Pastor Pitt and the members of the church council are actively monitoring the situation and will make changes as needed.
If you are unable to attend the service for any reason, a print version of Pastor Pitt’s sermons can always be found on the website shortly after the service. We are currently investigating other remote audio and visual options for the service.
