through the end
Our plans to reopen for worship have been pushed back. We will remain closed through August.
After consultation with the district office and our Planning & Preparation Taskforce, we've decided to hold off on gathering in person for worship. COVID-19 cases remain very high in Hamilton County. Several counties that had been given the green light to reopen for worship (by their respective districts) are being told to shut down again.
We have an extremely susceptible population. The age of our congregants, the number of persons being cared for by members of our congregation, and the number of persons with health concerns that could be exacerbated by the coronavirus are high. Additionally, we also have children who will be returning to school in some capacity, and their exposure not only to the coronavirus but all sorts of other illnesses could be brought back into their homes. For the safety and wellbeing of everyone, our team feels it best to wait a little longer before reopening.
We're aware that this decision is a difficult one, and that not everyone will agree with it. We ask for your grace and patience. We're feeling our way through this along with everyone else. We don't want to rush reopening and risk anyone's health.
Thank you for your graciousness, love and continued prayers during this time.
