A letter from our Pastor re: Covid-19
With the concern about the Coronavirus spreading through our communities, our Officers have been discussing ways that we can best serve our membership. Yesterday I received this message from Joey Lee, the Executive Presbyter of the Presbytery of San Jose,
To: The Presbytery of San Jose
After much conversation and actions already being taken by congregations in the presbytery, we believe it is time to suspend public worship, until Easter, April 12. We do not make this recommendation lightly and know it will mean a big disruption in the life of your congregation, but following advice from many public health sources, we believe this is the best course of action at this time. Your session can make decisions regarding other groups that use church property.
Our Session met to consider this recommendation and voted to suspend public worship, until Easter, April 12. Until that time, each week you will be able to access the worship service on the website. This week may be lighter than usual, because we are just beginning the process. Rev. I Sil Yoon will give the sermon this Sunday, March 15.
Go to our website https://www.covenantpresbyterian.net and click on the tab at the top: SUNDAY WORSHIP. Please call the church office or Rev. Boles if you have questions about how to access the online worship opportunities.
Until further notice, ALL of our meetings will take place by conference call or Zoom.
It is our highest priority that we stay connected to one another and we will offer Lenten Studies and Bible Studies online. A phone chain will be developed and you will hear from one of our members on a regular basis. If you would like to be part of this ministry, please let me know.
Each day brings changes to our situation. Our Elders and Deacons will meet regularly to reassess our plans.
At this time Natalie, our office manager, is working from home and the church office. If you need to reach her, it is best to send her an email.
Please be in touch with your friends and neighbors. Call one another. Offer encouragement and support!
Take care of yourself in these days, and don't hesitate to call the office or my cell phone if you have a need.
