Holy Cross COVID-19 Response

Current as of March 26, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and after discussions with the church council, Holy Cross has decided to suspend in-person worship services until the Bear River Health Department declares it safe to meet in large groups. We do this out of love and concern for our neighbors, to help “flatten the curve” of COVID-19.

We will still be able to worship together, however, even if we’ll be meeting apart from one another. Next Sunday, instead of coming to church, we’ll meet on YouTube, where I’ll be leading worship from my kitchen table. Adult Sunday School won’t stop either, and at 9 AM on Sunday, I will post a video continuing our study of the gospel of Luke.

We didn’t make this decision lightly, but we feel like this is the best way to serve our neighbors in the church and in our community. Continue to wash your hands; continue to follow all the “stay healthy” recommendations; and most of all, continue to pray and trust in God. God is bigger than anything we face on this earth, and I’m confident that, even if we don’t meet in person, we will still be able to gather together in a different type of community and give God glory.
