A Word from the Pastor: July 31, 2020 – Reopen Process Update

Reopen Process Update Dear Church Family, Our Reopen the Church Task Force met last night on Zoom to discuss the possibility of reopening for in-person worship in August.  Unfortunately, the July reports on the spread of Covid 19 do not favor that.  In fact, July has been a particularly high month for Denton county in reported new cases.  Hopefully, increased personal participation in mitigation efforts will result in a flattening, and ultimately, a decline in spread in August.  I am painfully aware of ...

A Word from the Pastor: July 1, 2020

Dear Church Family, I had hoped to be able to invite you back to church in July today but unfortunately the recent persistent increases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in north Texas require us to remain closed a while longer.  We will be watching trends in the spread of Covid 19 over the next two weeks in hope that there will be a plateau or decline that will give us greater confidence to reopen later in the month.  When we do resume worship ...

A Word from the Pastor: May 24, 2020

Dear Church Family, I pray that you are safe, healthy, and experiencing the nearness and love of God in these days of waiting. Yes, there’s a lot of waiting going on for all of us. It seems that life has slowed down in almost every way. Maybe the only place that we are not waiting as much as we used to is in traffic and that’s because we aren’t going anywhere!  We wait for a treatment and vaccination for COVID-19 and for ...

A Word from the Pastor: April 25, 2020

Dear Church Family, As we continue to follow the guidelines of the medical community and our leaders, we limit the spread and effects of COVID-19 by doing our part through social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing, staying home as much as possible, and masking when it is necessary to go out for essentials.  If we practice these sacrifices on behalf of others, we serve as Jesus has called us to and we will reap the benefits in our own health and well-being. We all long ... Read More »
