UPDATE OCTOBER 9, 2020
Greetings to All in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Our journey continues!
We have been on quite an adventure since March when Covid shut everything down. Church as we knew it, stopped. None of us would have believed it if someone had predicted to us a year earlier what 2020 would bring. But, is God in this?
We know He is. And, we believe He is getting the attention of His people. It is time to reexamine who we are, and what our our priorities are. For that reason, we are moving into Hill Houses in a new way. For that reason, we have “Open Church,” once a month on a Sunday morning.
Surely this “pause” did force us to “rethink,” “reframe,” and “reform.” Here’s one more adjustment. We have decided to celebrate the Lord’s Table at the end of Sunday’s meeting rather in the beginning. After Pastor James finishes his message we will go right to a song from our worship team. At the end of that song our YouTube connection will be ended as well. But, as a community we will then share the Lord’s Table together. This will give us the intimacy of sharing together “in the privacy of our own home,” so to speak. It will also allow for some who might be too intimidated to pray at the Table while knowing it is being videoed.
So if you are virtual on Sunday you will plan to receive communion at the end of that closing song in your home. For those of us in the sanctuary, you will not think we have forgotten to do the Table when we move from music to the message. All other guidelines remain the same.
So happy to with you on the Lord’s Day. Be blessed.
