Greetings members of Immanuel,
Out of an abundance of caution the Church Council has made the hard decision to cancel this Sunday’s in-person worship service.  We have several members of one family that attended worship last Sunday, November 8, 2020 that have been exposed by a family member they live with who has tested positive and has active symptoms for COVID-19.  Those exposed will or have already been tested but they will not have the results before Sunday morning.  If they ALL test NEGATIVE we will resume in-person worship on Sunday, November 22, 2020.  If ANY of them test POSITIVE we will not have in-person worship again before November 29, 2020.  This is assuming that no other members that attended worship on November 8, 2020 develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19. 

IMPORTANT:  We will still have our congregational meeting at 9:45 am.  We ask that as many of you that are able be in the church parking lot by 9:45 am.  Please remain in your car.  The meeting will be streamed via Zoom, Pastor Veronica will send a link soon.  Council members will be in the parking lot to help you park and will provide copies of the meeting agenda and supporting documents as needed.  Please bring your copy of the agenda with you as we have limited copies available at church.  We will print more if necessary.  

While we will not be having in-person worship this Sunday Pastor Veronica will be recording a service and posting it on the Church webpage following the congregational meeting.  After the meeting council members will direct cars out of the parking lot, and as you leave Pastor Veronica will provide you with communion to take home. 

We are living in unprecedented times and never expected that 2020 would be such a hard year.  Please continue to pray for our church, our community, and our country that we will conquer this disease soon. 

Many blessings and prayers to you all!
