Various organizations have increased their efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. As a church, we also want to take necessary precautions to keep our community safe.
The San Mateo County Department of Public Health has recommended that all events larger than 250 people be cancelled or postponed, and that smaller gatherings maintain a social distancing of at least 6 feet. In light of these new directives, the pastoral team has decided to take the following precautions:
- Sunday service will be hosted exclusively virtually every Sunday at 11 AM
- Care Group gathering will be on virtual meeting through Zoom
- Virtual prayer meeting every Wednesday at 7 PM
To be clear, we should not be fearful because our trust is in the Lord. But we also want to exercise wisdom and make sure that we are not contributing to the spread of this disease. We believe that these precautions are one way that we can be wise and obey Jesus’ command, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
