COVID-19 Pandemic Update

View Holy Cross’s COVID-19 response here

I am so sad to be writing this. I was so excited to see people this week, but with another “highest single day case count” of COVID-19 cases in our state, almost half of which are from our own backyard, the church council and I have decided that it’s best to postpone services indefinitely, until we see a clear decline in the number of daily cases.

It’s definitely not ideal, and none of us are happy about this decision, but we feel it’s the only decision we can make. As wonderful as it would be to meet together again, we just can’t justify it while the pandemic seems to be in another spike. We hope that we can feel comfortable inviting you all back to church soon, but we have no idea when that will be.

Until then, we’ll continue meeting online. In some good news, starting next week, we’ll be bringing back some of the music from our liturgy. We’ll also be continuing to have church from the church instead of from my kitchen. For a little while, the services will be pre-recorded and rebroadcast, but once the church’s internet is upgraded we’ll be able to livestream the services again.

I wish we could meet back at the church this Sunday and every Sunday, but until then we’ll have to continue worshiping together apart. I urge you to reach out to one another and find ways to continue friendships through this uncertain time.

Until we can meet together again, you’ll see me online!

Announcements

We are in the Season after Pentecost, when we are shaped by the Holy Spirit tolearn and grow as followers of Jesus Christ. During this time, the narrative lectionary contains “mini-series” on various topics. This year we have series on the Lord’s Prayer, Job, and 2 Corinthians. Our paraments are green to reflect our growth as disciples of Jesus.

With the spike in COVID-19 cases, the church council has decided to postpone in-person services until there is a clear decline in new cases. This decision wasn’t easy for any of us, but we felt it was the best choice for now. We will keep you posted as to when we feel returning to in-person worship is the best expression of our love for God and for you, our neighbors.

After much prayer and consultation, NUMA has decided to cancel Church in the Park this year. With the spike in COVID cases in our area, we felt that it was a better witness of the Good News of Jesus to err on the side of caution and refrain from meeting together and risking further outbreak. We will be holding this event next year!

Sunday School for children and adults is recessed until fall.

Holy Cross Quilters have recessed until the fall and will resume meeting and making quilts the first Wednesday of October.
