I have placed myself under quarantine because I came back from the conference with what I hope is merely an obnoxious cold. I see conflicting ideas of what the symptoms of COVID 19 are. Anyway, my office is, for the moment, in my home.
I will be exploring doing worship on Sunday as a live Facebook stream which is then uploaded to this website. I will strive to offer that service at 10:30 AM on Sunday, our regular time. Of course, if every church on the east coast tries to do the same thing, the system may be overwhelmed! Internet providers have indicated that they are up to the challenge, but we have to be prepared for glitches.
There are ongoing concerns that come before us as navigate these new ways of being the church. I went to the office today to change our greeting (something I couldn't do remotely, apparently) and get the password for our church email account so that I can keep in touch. When I went, I made sure to take food for our little pantry. If you run errands, please remember that little ministry! We have been told that the needs are only going to increase.
And, please remember to support the church financially. Perhaps you can arrange to pay through on-line banking, if you do that. Or send a check by mail. At the moment, Michelle still plans to be in the office on Monday and Friday mornings. I will return to the office when I am past this illness.
