COVID-19 UPDATE

Updated 9/9/2021

Dear LUMC family,

 

Over the course of the past couple weeks, our church family has been impacted and unsettled by the latest resurgence of COVID-19. We have lost loved ones. My own family in still in quarantine after testing positive ourselves. It has become quite obvious that we are not living in a “post-COVID world” but are still in the throes of learning how to live, how to worship, how to keep being the church God has called us to be with COVID present in our midst.

 

After moving worship completely online last Sunday (Sept. 5), we are looking forward to being back together for worship in-person again this week. However, we will be making a couple changes to our in-person protocols in light of the recent spike in cases locally.

 

1) We will be requesting that everyone over age 2 (regardless of vaccination status) wear a mask at all LUMC gatherings and events.

 

2) We will be delaying the start of our Sunday morning Discipleship Groups. This will, for the time being, minimize the amount of time we are all together in the building on Sunday mornings and allow our staff to focus on extra sanitizing efforts in between worship services.

 

Our staff team will be continually re-evaluating our protocols in light of recommendations from the CDC and the Fairfield County Department of Health. Thank you for your patience and your perseverance as we continue upon this journey together.

 

“May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.”  2 Thessalonians 3:5

 

Living into Hope,

Alex Feldman, Pastor
