In March after the government encouraged us to
shelter in place, we quit gathering on Sunday
morning and in our groups to participate in flattening the curve. That has been accomplished,
the healthcare system has not been overwhelmed and the state has begun to encourage
businesses to re-open with precautions as we move forward. Yet we still acknowledge the virus is spreading and can have severe effects on the vulnerable.
The Elders believe now is the time for us to begin to
encourage some to meet. We want to start with our Growth Groups before we gather again in the Sanctuary. We set a tentative date of June 28 to begin in-person worship on Sundays. This gives us time devise a responsible procedure for regathering. Until then, we ask that if our group leaders are willing to host group meetings that they
do so. We recognize that not everyone who hosted in the past is willing to host now and some
people will not feel comfortable attending.
We believe Growth Groups allow us to ease into
regathering, and from a spiritual stand point
we believe some people really need to re-gather. We are more than physical beings. Our
spiritual and mental health are also very important.
Please use this guide to formulate the plan for regathering that works for you and your Growth Group.
