Grace and peace to you from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ! I pray that you are finding peace and strength during this extraordinary season. While our building has been closed over the past few months, church leaders have been hard at work preparing for a safe return to in-person ministry. Worship has been at the heart of these plans, because it forms the heart of who we are as a church family, inspiring so much of our fellowship, discipleship, and service.
I am excited to share that in-person services will resume on Sunday, September 6. Eventually we plan to return to a full, “regular” schedule, but initially our worship offerings will include:
Guided by Bishop Sharma Lewis and the Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church, as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, our Healthy Church Team has developed the following guidelines for in-person worship. A video describing our expectations and answering many questions is provided at the bottom of this page and may also be accessed here.
Although many of these are difficult and unwelcome changes, they will help us care for another and protect our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding, as we find our way forward together.
Please know that we love you and we’re here for you, whether you’re planning to be in worship beginning September 6, or if you choose to wait a little longer, or just wish to keep worshiping with us online for the time being. There is no right or wrong way to approach this, and we are all (always!) one family in Christ.
Thanks be to God!
Blessings Upon Blessings,
Pastor David Vaughan
