May 15th 2020 Update

Hi Church, Today's update is short and significant! 1. We tentatively plan to re-open on Sunday, June 7th! I will have Sue send out an attachment later that provides all the details regarding the re-opening; but here are some of the highlights.  We will shift to what we are calling "summer hours" and offer a gathering at 9:00 AM (that is shorter and includes at least some traditional elements), and at 10:45 AM(that is a little longer and more contemporary in form).  We are hoping these times are both attractive alternatives for those planning to return immediately. Seating/social distancing guidelines will be such that we can accommodate about 50 to 120 people in each gathering.  We will continue to provide live-streaming as a regular part of our weekly worship, offering it at 10:45 AM. All that you will find in our re-opening outline is consistent with our desire to honor Ohio guidelines for businesses that are re-opening and the feedback received from our Marion Health Department.  The worship schedule provides enough time between gatherings for cleaning, worship rehearsal, and live-stream preparation.  Again, be on the lookout for the detailed attachment. 2.  Peter Rufener will be preaching at our live-stream gathering on May 31!  And Lord willing, he and Heidi will also be with us for our on site gatherings on June 21(with Peter preaching at that gathering as well and such also being live-streamed)!  We are looking to find some creative ways for the body to connect with them the weekend of June 21. Following a window of several days for feedback to governing board members from the body, the board will meet to prayerfully consider extending a call to the Rufeners to join us!  If extended and if accepted by them, we would hope to have them serving with us by early August(though their full transition to a house here etc. may take a little longer). Marlene and I will still plan to have our final Sunday in the lead pastor role, Lord willing, on August 30. As we move forward, may Spirit-sensitivity, wisdom, and unity walk with us the whole way! In Christ, Pastor Tim
