Church Board Votes to Reopen

Our Board met this past Wednesday evening and a primary discussion topic was if and when we would reopen the building on Sunday mornings. Both Linda and I called people to get their input and that was presented to the Board as data in making the decision. In a split decision the Board voted to open the building in July for worship. The opening date is set for July 19.

Preliminary guidelines for participating are as follows:

Masks must be worn to safeguard all people.

Seating will be in every other pew.

Social distancing will be required in seating.

The service will be different from the norm. [Details still to be worked out].

There will still be a video presentation at 10 am on Sunday for those who are not ready to return.

Pray for the pastor and others as we work out the safest way to do this.

We hired a new woman last month who was unemployed when the bars shut down. She is doing well.

Pray for the cases of trafficked women to move forward and for the women to be ready to go home as soon as the borders open. Pray that while they are waiting, they will grow in their faith and find further healing.

20 Prayers to Pray During the Pandemic

7. For nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and other long-term care facilities: God, encourage the lonely residents and strengthen the staff members who help them. Prevent further spread of infection, and comfort families who can no longer visit their loved ones.

8. For the incarcerated, who are particularly vulnerable to the spread of this virus: God, give wisdom to prison officials. Protect inmates and staff from both violence and illness. Deliver them all from fear.

9. For women and children in abusive situations: God, restrain those who commit harm. Provide protection and rescue for victims and comfort them in their vulnerability.

10. For countries in the developing world: God, contain the spread of infection in our world’s most densely populated and poorest cities. Spare countries already burdened with disease and chronic poor health.
