Gospel Fellowship: Church Update
July 14th, 2020
Dear Members and Regular Attenders,
Last night the elders and I met to discuss our continuing efforts to work through the difficulties related to COVID-19. Of course all of this has been a great challenge. Here are a few items for your information at this time.
Worship Schedule: First, we are going to continue to host three services weekly into the near future: 8:30AM, 11:00AM, and 6:00PM. Please help us to maintain proper social distancing during these worship times. Hosting three services keeps each time slot less congested. Of course, you are welcome to attend any service that you like. Sunday school will continue to be held at 9:40AM.
Evenings Outdoors: Second, we are excited to announce that we are going to attempt to do some of our 6:00PM evening services outdoors in the pavilion, especially while the weather is favorable. The order of service and sermon will be the same as the morning services. Please feel free to bring lawn chairs if you would like extra space. We are hoping that this service option makes some who have been uncomfortable indoors feel more comfortable to attend. If the weather does not cooperate, we will move indoors.
Communion: Third, communion will resume being held on the first Sunday of the month. Please prepare your heart accordingly. We will continue to prepare the elements with special precautions, with all persons involved wearing masks and gloves.
Official Information: Finally, please continue to monitor health information from official sources such as the CDC and the Governor of Pennsylvania as they are constantly changing. All members should continue to monitor national and statewide information bulletins. As Christian believers, we are to recognize and honor our proper authorities (See Romans 13 and WCF 23). Here are some sources of information to consider:
Thank you so much for your help, patience, and actions to display love and concern for one another! I am so proud of our church’s response during this crisis.
Yours in Christ,
Dr. Matthew Everhard
