ABFs & Children's Programs Scheduled to Restart Sept. 5th
Because a few of our Adult Bible Fellowship leaders have tested positive for COVID-19, and in light of some of our Children's Ministry workers being unable to serve, ABFs and children's programs have been suspended. These programs include nurseries, Sunday schools, and Wednesday children's choirs. We are planning to restart these programs the week of Sept. 5th. The Love Like You Mean It Conference will proceed as scheduled, this Saturday, August 21 since the ratio of attendees to the size of the fellowship hall allows for ample safe spacing. Additionally, our Upward Sports program will begin practice August 30th because it is an outdoor event.
In-person worship services will continue to be offered, and safe-spacing will be observed. Additionally, families wishing to attend worship services will also have the option to gather in the fellowship hall at our Beaufort campus.
Recent articles in our local news media have made us aware of a sharp increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations. (www.islandpacket.com/news/coronavirus/article253467634.html) As we begin our fall activities we want our congregation to be aware of the statistics related to the virus, particularly the high transmissibility of the Delta variant. The last thing we want to do is to cancel or cut back in-person worship services and other activities. But we do believe it is a loving and Christian act to present the most current local information, as we understand it, so that our members can make their own informed decisions regarding participation.
The safety and well-being of our parishioners is our utmost concern as we continue to monitor developments relating to this pandemic. We will continue to communicate updates as circumstances change. Please continue to pray for the recovery of those affected, for the safety and protection of all others, and for an end to this pandemic.
