Hello, First United Methodist of Hoisington Family!
Like you, I have concerns about COVID-19. I find comfort in knowing that regardless of what’s going on in the world around us, God remains in control.
I believe it is our response to this crisis to get close God so that we can trust Him in whatever situations. During times like these, staying connected to God can help us have calm hearts and peaceful minds.
First, before I announce this news, I hope that the peace of God that transcends above everything may guide you in this time of commotion.
As members of the human community, we are not physically immune from the realities that are happening in our world.
Our Bishop encouraged worship attendance of 50 or more to seriously consider suspending worship services until more is known about the spread of COVID-19. The federal government also discourages over 10 people gathering.
As I have talked with leaders of the church, I decided to cancel our coming Sunday Service as a precaution and to reevaluate this next week.
Even though, we can connect through our small meetings that will happen at the church building or homes. I encourage you to call the elderly or shut-in which will uplift their hearts at this time. I am also trying to reach you by email and short message through the YouTube platform. I will send you a link through email at the end of the week so that you can see my message.
Peace in Christ.
