I write to inform you that church leadership has come to the difficult decision to immediately suspend all in-person Covenant Church gatherings, services and ministries until further notice.
How have we come to this decision? We seek with wisdom and prayer to discern the input of those with unique knowledge in these matters and those in positions of authority. Our responsibility, as circumstances around us change, is to speak, live, and make decisions in such a way that the Gospel message of flourishing would be extended to everyone, especially the vulnerable. By taking this more drastic action of shutting down now, we may prevent the spread of the virus later. Preventing the spread of the virus may literally save lives and diminish the duration of this trial. Therefore, in the interests of “loving our neighbor” we, along with many large and small organizations have determined to take this step.
