With the endorsement of Presbytery Council, we strongly encourage our congregations to continue gathering for virtual worship only, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in our seven counties.

We concur with the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian Church USA, who wrote in December 2020, “People are dying. We should choose life and life more abundantly as our Scripture requires. We recognize that church is not a building. We are able to worship remotely, and we’ve found opportunities to have worship through other venues that do not require us to leave our homes.”

God calls us to be faithful in these times and in all times, and we believe that it is most faithful to be safe and to protect the most vulnerable among us. If you need support in these days, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Rev. Dr. Jan Edmiston, General Presbytery & Rev. Dr. Alice Ridgill, Associate General Presbyter
