Suspending ALL In-Person Services Through 10/3
To Our Edgewood Members and Guests:
As we continue to deal with the effects of COVID, we want to exercise care and wisdom in all that we do. The elders have counted almost a dozen new COVID cases in our congregation over the last two weeks and, while all of the infected members have acted responsibly, we have decided to err on the side of caution to prevent any further spread.
Consequently, the elders have decided to suspend ALL in-person services and activities through October 3. During this time we will continue to provide a live stream of the morning service at 10:30am which you can find by clicking the ‘Live Stream’ banner on the home page. We will not, however, have a Sunday school live stream while Jonathan Merritt is filling in for Pastor Andy who is himself in COVID quarantine. Unless circumstances change, our plan is to return to the sanctuary on Sunday, October 4.
This is not an easy decision for us to make and we’re disappointed that our gatherings will be interrupted. But God is good, and we trust that even COVID is one of the “all things” He’s causing to work for our good in the end.
We continue to pray for you and ask that God will protect the Edgewood body. Pray for those already dealing with COVID and please pray for us—we need wisdom in all these matters.
