Thank you to everyone that participated in the Digging Deeper conversation on Tuesday night. It was wonderful to hear your thoughts and feelings about living with this new reality of COVID-19. If you didn’t get a chance to join us, we’d love to know how you are feeling! Teresa Platin and Andrea Shirey are open to conversations and feedback that we can relay to the rest of the Task Force.
On Tuesday, we learned that one of our congregants tested positive after attending worship on Sunday. Thankfully, they let us know right away. Instead of calling everyone in service, we intentionally informed worship participants through several ways. Scott informed everyone that was at the Elder and Deacon training and Teresa made an announcement at Digging Deeper. Everyone that was at worship last Sunday and possibly exposed that were not in these two groups were called by Andrea or Teresa. We are committed to letting everyone know of possible exposures. Thank you for being flexible in how you receive the message.
We know that this newest variant of COVID is highly contagious! We are continuing to meet as a Task Force to discuss ways to make worshiping together as safe as possible. As you know, though, we cannot ensure or guarantee that people will not be exposed to the virus. We are recommending that everyone, especially if you have additional risk factors that make you vulnerable to severe complications, talk with your healthcare providers about attending worship in person. We have an amazing team that works hard to provide livestreaming of our service each week.
We hold these values in high regard:
