Yesterday Mayor Cooper’s office announced a new series of COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings including the “Rule of 8” in which “all gatherings are restricted to eight people or a maximum of two family groups.”
We have decided to start following those guidelines this Sunday and so we are suspending in-person worship. Only essential worship personnel will be on site at the church to record the service. That includes Rev. Mike, William, a cantor, a liturgist and a two-person technical team.
We are grateful to everyone who has joined us on Sunday. Even a small group of worshipers spread out in the sanctuary has added vitality and intimacy to the recording. But we also have a responsibility to our staff and volunteers who work hard to make worship happen and we want to continue to be able to record – and eventually livestream – from the sanctuary.
We hope that you will continue to experience the service when it drops on Facebook at 11:00 a.m.
Grace and peace,
Rev. Mike and the DPC Session
