From Pastor Gregory
As of Thursday this week 15 states have reported confirmed cases of people with the highly contagious Coronavirus.
Texas is among them. We are getting notifications from denominations and local churches about plans to be preventive. While we should not panic about this situation, it is reasonable to take precautionary steps to avoid unnecessary
risks of spreading the virus.
 
For the time being, at our public gatherings let us agree to the following common sense actions:
  • Hugs and hand-shaking should be understood to be appropriately discouraged for the good and safety of all.
  • Communion preparers will need to use hand sanitizer before preparing the bread on Sunday morning.
  • Elders should use hand sanitizer before dispensing the bread, and should dip the bread and give it directly to celebrants.
  • Closing prayers should not include hand-holding.
  • Of course, anyone feeling sick should NOT attend church or other public gatherings.
 
These are easy measures that are protective of our most vulnerable population. I am sure we will have consensus on these simple precautions. Thank-you for your understanding and support.
