Dear Neighborhood Church Family,
Above and beyond what is happening with COVID-19. The nations is now reeling from injustice, racism, looting and more. My heart breaks and goes out to our African American brothers and sisters who have experienced ongoing injustice. As our church continues to embrace the beauty of being a multi-ethnic congregation, I hope we can model in a simple way how the Gospel of Jesus Christ both unites and reconciles people of all ages, ethnicities, and both men and women.
With regards to COVID-19, on June 1, Montgomery County Entered Phase 1 of Reopening. This is good news and we celebrate this. As a part of Phase 1, not much has changed in the state and county. Guidelines continue to restrict church gathering to 10 people or less. There is also the ability to have drive in services with no contact, which in some way defeats the purpose.
In light of this, we will continue to meet virtually through Phase 1 and then reevaluate when we know what is allowed in Phase 2.
May you know Jesus and his encouragement during this time and if there is any way the church can help, let us know.
Grace and Peace
