SOCIAL, NOT SPIRITUAL DISTANCE
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
Dear Church Family, In times of crisis, people of faith are drawn into community. It's where we find strength and comfort. In the midst of the COVID19 emergency, it perhaps feels cruel to be restricted from that means of grace. From now until the end of March, all worship, Bible study, pastoral care, and classes will be moved to a virtual platform. In most cases we will be using Zoom video conferencing technology. If you don't already have the program, you may download it for free here . There will also be an option to call in using a phone.
The Church Council, worship committee, and your ministers are working tirelessly to creatively maintain a sense of spiritual connection and community even as we are restricted from gathering in person. This is for the safety not only for you, but for the greater public health in an effort to slow the spread of the virus by "flattening the curve." Church leadership will meet regularly via Zoom during this crisis and update you as we have new information. Read this letter from Bishop Bickerton requesting that we do not gather for public worship even as we find new ways to "be the church."
If you usually share your offering on Sunday morning, please consider making your gift online here
or mailing a check to the church: 410 6th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11215. Keeping our church finances consistent will help us continue to offer a strong faithful community through this challenging season.
We are developing additional opportunities for remaining spiritually connected.
In the meantime, we need to hear from you about what you need and how you want to engage at this time.
