Regarding Concerns Over COVID-19

Dear Mercy Hill Church Family,

As all of us are tracking the story concerning the Coronavirus, the leadership team and I have discussed the best approach for the church and how we can best love our neighbors. As of now, church services will continue to be hosted. However, for many within our congregation the best way to participate in those services may be through our Facebook Live or Youtube broadcasts. This is especially true for those in the age groups that have been most negatively impacted by this virus, individuals who are 60 and older. Also, any individual, regardless of age, with underlying health issues should consider staying away from all public spaces, including church.

If you decide to attend any service in person, please take all the proper precautions: wash your hands carefully, use the hand sanitizer in the lobby, and avoid direct physical contact with others. Smile and wave. Avoid handshakes and hugs. We will also suspend the passing of offering plates. Instead, there are drop boxes in the back of the sanctuary that you can use for offerings. Online giving is also easily found on our website, www.mhchurch.org.

In summary, our services will continue as usual. However, avoid physical contact while at church, and we will have no passing of plates during the services. If you are particularly at risk for coronavirus or just desire to be cautious with this potential threat, then stay away from public gatherings, including worship services and watch the services via Facebook Live or Youtube. This is a rapidly changing situation that may require quick adjustments to these plans. Check our website, Facebook, and watch the app for updates.

Thankful to be your pastor,

Aaron

    I have a second hand sanitizer stand if you want me to bring it tomorrow or Sunday let me know.
