Error!Dear Glencross Congregation,
Ministerial and Church Council have been in communication with regards to the Coronavirus and have made a decision to have our regular church service on Sunday March 15th.
Peter Redekopp will be bringing the message
We will be monitoring, reviewing and discussing future services on an ongoing basis and will provide updates as decisions are made.
We ask that you please consider the information below to take necessary precautions.
The global spread of COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. There is fear and anxiety about this virus in our society but we want to frame our response to this crisis from a foundation of our deep assurance of God’s knowledge and care for us. We do want to be wise in our response and help protect one another as much as possible. This is why we have made some changes to all of our gatherings. Please join us in following these precautionary measures listed below. We continue to exercise our faith by praying for those serving in health care as they wrestle through the challenges of the flu and COVID-19, and for families affected by this illness. In light of who God is, we encourage you to remain calm, be courageous, wise, and always ready to do good in our community and world.
1. We encourage those who are feeling ill to stay home until you are well.
2. We ask that seniors or otherwise vulnerable people consider avoiding Sunday and other gatherings for a season. Watching services online or listening to sermons online is a good option until the threat of COVID-19 decreases.
We recognize that this is a personal decision and want to respect the choices you make.
3. If you know of any seniors and others who will be experiencing isolation because of these crises Please let someone in the church leadership know so we can organize phone support, grocery pick up, meal delivery and other services that may be appropriate during this time.
4. Please greet one another without a handshake, or hug etc., and remember to cough into your sleeve, tissue etc. and dispose of any used tissue immediately.
