Dear Pinehaven Congregation,
The past year has been a trying one for God’s people throughout the world. We have experienced many changes and adjustments to our normal way of life. Through it all, God’s faithfulness to His people has been unwavering. May we continually give thanks for His all-sufficient grace.
We are thankful for the availability of vaccines and for the declining number of new Covid cases. In light of these and other factors the officers thought it prudent to reevaluate our current policies and begin a measured return to more normal practices with worship services and other church activities.
• Beginning April 18, masks will not be required but optional for worship services in the auditorium. The fellowship hall is available with live streaming for any who prefer to limit their exposure to unmasked individuals.
• All pews in the auditorium will be open for seating. We ask that you continue to observe social distancing protocols as much as possible in seating and personal interaction with others.
• Adult Sunday School class will resume in the Fellowship Hall Sunday, May 9.
• The nursery will be available for use but there will be no nursery worker(s) at this time. Parents will need to be responsible for their children.
A timetable for resuming youth Sunday School classes and Fellowship Lunch is in the works. Specific practices inobserving the Lord’s Supper are also being considered. An announcement regarding these activities will come in the near future.
Many differences of opinion exist regarding the Covid virus and how we should respond to it. Let’s be respectful of one another’s views, remembering that we are one in Christ. We urge all to continue to pray for unity in the Body of Christ, our Lord’s protection and preservation of His church, and an end to this virus.
