The time has come to take the next step. We will launch in-person worship on Sundays at 11 am at Holbrook UMC beginning August 30. It has been a challenge to be disconnected physically during this time and it will do our souls well to see one another face-to-face. We will continue to meet online on Zoom at 9 am every Sunday for those who prefer that option. There is no judgement or shame in either choice. My letter next week will give more details about our procedures for gathering in-person as we work it out. We will wear masks and maintain social distancing. Our worship service will be adapted to meet safety protocol. I appreciate everyone’s patience and encouragement during this difficult time of COVID19. I love seeing your faces on my computer screen each Sunday and will continue to cherish that time. But I will also be happy to see those face-to-face who chose to worship in-person. The threat of COVID19 is real and continuing, so we need to remain diligent in caring for ourselves and one another.
Dear People of Grace, Holbrook, Pine Creek and Shields Valley UMC’s,
I hope this finds each of you well. I had a wonderful vacation with my family. It was good to get away, disconnect, and spend time with my parents and daughters. I even did a few handstands, which keeps me young!
As we roll through August, my mind and heart are with students, teachers, and administrators as they face such challenging circumstances. So much is different while we recognize the importance our schools play in our community life. Decisions are so complex. Will you join me in prayer and support of our schools? Here is a suggestion for prayer:
