Reopening and Opportunity

The county goes GREEN today! I am hopeful that we will be able to sustain our progress against the coronavirus in Pennsylvania. Of course, the virus hasn’t gone anywhere and it remains important to be prudent, wear masks, and keep distance. It is a way we love one another. While I myself am not in a high risk group, I live with my mother-in-law and see other persons who are high risk. As we move toward reopening, we have three processes going forward:
  • Our council is working at implementation plans that keep the current recommendations from the Bishop, the PA Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control in mind.
  • Our technology team is working at testing and implementing technology to make it possible to live-stream worship from the sanctuary.
  • Our staff is imagining how to make worship “fun” given the limitations imposed by the virus AND how to provide a diverse menu of options to reach a congregation with a variety of needs.
Furthermore, our greatest opportunity in this season is to resource natural groups of friends, relatives, and neighbors to do “church in my house.” The primitive church met primarily in homes and that venue for discipleship and mission remains powerful today. If you have a group of people with whom you gather safely, please let me know!
