Dear Church Family, 

Your council met this past Monday, March 16 to discuss the recent updated guidelines given by the President and the White House. In light of these new guidelines and striving to be cautious as well as compassionate, the council unanimously decided to suspend services for the next two weeks (March 22 and March 29). The council will meet again on March 31 to reevaluate further actions at that time. We are encouraging all our members to follow the President’s Coronavirus guidelines issued Monday, March 16. They are listed below for your reference.  

In the meantime, Pastor Chuck will create a detailed liturgical worship handout to be sent to all our members. This handout will include the normal components of our service for each of us to go through individually or with our families. Ideally, this will be on Sunday morning at 10:30 from home. We will all have the opportunity to read, pray, sing and meditate on God’s word and contemplate the Lord’s Supper. Going through the liturgy together around the same time will foster more of a corporate experience that we miss in suspending the public service. Of course, you are welcome to go through it at any time. This liturgy will be sent out Saturday evening. 

In His Service, 

CCRC Council
