Now that states are beginning to re-open, we are gathering data from the CDC, the governor's and mayor's offices, our bishop's office and other synods, in order to determine a timetable, safe practices, and cleaning procedures for re-opening GA. The 're-opening the building task force' continues to meet every two weeks to discuss new data and information and plan our reopening in an incremental fashion. Open Arms Preschool reopened in September 2020 and continues to operate. We have also started allowing some building partners that follow all necessary guidelines to use the sanctuary space in a reduced capacity. The task force is now focused on how to reopen the sanctuary space to worship services in collaboration with the worship committee. We will continue to provide updates to the congregation as our plan is developed and implemented.
Each Sunday, for GA’s zoom worship, we welcome participants, family, friends, and GA folks from all over the country and even beyond the US. We gather to worship our God, to hear the Good News, to pray together, to comfort one another, to be uplifted and encouraged and challenged by the presence of God’s Holy Spirit with us.
As worship nourishes and sustains us we want to offer that opportunity to an ever-widening community and so we invite you to share the zoom link for GA worship with one other family member or friend. In this way, we can continue to grow in our outreach and discipleship.
Please virtually join us on Sundays at 11:00 AM EDT (prelude begins at 1055):
