With the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in our area (and Minnesota hospital beds reaching capacity), we will be returning to one service (10:00 am) each Sunday for the coming weeks and ask that masks be worn through the entirety of our public worship gatherings. These changes will take effect November 15th through the end of the year. We will continue to assess the situation and adjust our services and protocol accordingly. Our hope is that this temporary change, while inconvenient, will enable us to keep offering in-person services (some area churches have had to temporarily suspend in-person worship recently due to increased illness), as well as help steward our local health resources.
We will also be mailing an important letter to you next week with some significant matters of communication, including a ballot for our members to return by mail.
Most certainly these are extraordinary times in which we would be wise to pray for God to work in extraordinary ways! Please pray for God’s provision, wisdom, and the unifying work of the Spirit as He leads us through times of change for new seasons of fruitful ministry. This is our confidence: “God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed” (2 Cor. 9:8).
