Services, Meditation and Prayer Requests
This morning, following an email from the Cuba City School District, I contacted the Grant and LaFayette county health departments to get a better picture of how COVID-19 case numbers were behaving in Cuba City specifically. I was informed that 80% of new cases were in Platteville and south. Since September 6th there has been a rapid increase of cases across not only our county but (now it appears) Cuba City specifically. Because of this, in order to protect our congregation, I strongly believe it’s best we move to virtual worship immediately.
We will continue to explore how to best carry on and expand our ministry during this trying time. I am looking into options for an online Bible study as well as ways we can safely serve each other. Perhaps some outdoor service projects for our youth that can be done safely and in good conscience.
Once we again have a steady decrease in cases for 3 weeks we will return to in-person worship. I realize this means it will likely be some time before we are able to meet together again, but safety is of the highest priority. I simply do not feel good risking the health of our congregants especially knowing what I do now - that cases in our city are on the rise, and there are known, active cases at the elementary school.
Hebrews 10:23-25 states: Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. This breaks my heart and I am already feeling the darkness of mourning a loss setting in, but we hold on to a deep hope in Christ that the loss of being physically in our building and together is a loss of only that and nothing more. We can still stand together in sharing the Gospel, our hope in Christ, and encouraging one another as we draw closer to the end of this difficult time.
