Dear Church Family,
The session voted unanimously to enter Phase 2 of a 3 Phase reopening plan. Phase 2 will begin on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Here is what to expect during Phase 2.
There are two simple additions to Phase 2. First, youth group will resume for our teenagers both on Sunday evenings and Wednesday nights. Secondly, Wednesday night services will resume in the fellowship hall for adults on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, at 6:30pm. At this time, no meal will be served on Wednesday nights. In regards to worship, everything will continue with both services as in Phase 1 with no changes. In fact, those who are either sick or at-risk are encouraged to continue worshiping with us online during Phase 2.
We are mindful of the fact some will view this reopening as too slow while others will view the reopening as moving too swiftly. We love all of our members and respect their conscience during this time in our church’s history.
Once again, we ask those attending to consider all perceived inconveniences as an opportunity to bring a sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. We encourage our church family to be kind to one another and tenderhearted towards one another (Ephesians 4:32). This includes those holding a different level of caution or conscience during this time. Most importantly, we encourage all of our members to live by faith rather than fear.
Yours in Christ,
The Elders of The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church
Corona - Phase 2
