Once again, we are being told by the governor of California that we are not to hold indoor worship services.
The Bible tells us that we are to obey God rather than man. The same God who teaches us that truth also teaches us to love one another. He tells us to seek the good of others. As Pastor, I have to make decisions that may be unreasonable to some people. I do not mean to offend anyone.
I have looked at the weather forecast for next Sunday to see how practical an outdoor service would be. We did this once before and I thought it turned out well, so I thought I would check on the possibility again. According to the weather people, this Sunday, July 19 will be clear and the temperature will be around 75 degrees at 9:00am, so we will once again have an outdoor service, this time beginning at 9:00am. I repeat 9:00am. I will set chairs up in the shade, again separated by six feet between family groups. Please wear masks as you visit with others and make your way to your seat. Feel free to remove your mask while in your seat.
This will be a worship service like our other normal morning services. We will NOT be meeting for in-person evening services or Wednesday evening services until further notice. They will all be recorded and online. I encourage you and your family to take the time to watch and listen to the messages. Please be in prayer for our church and all who have been affected by the COVID-19 virus.
Thank you for your patience and prayers for one another. Please do not hesitate to call me if you need me. I am still available.
