We Welcome you
to Holy Cross…
 
 
An Important Message from Pastor Kathy…
 
February 16, 2021
 
Welcome back to worshipping inside the building of Holy Cross! We are planning for about 40 people for each service, with seating spread out in the Narthex and in the sanctuary.  
 

I do want to let you know that to continue doing our part in lowering the spread of the virus, we will maintain the protocols that we have established.  We will all (me included) wear masks.  We will use hand sanitizer.  We will all maintain social distancing from one another.  We will not shake hands, hug people, or sit next to people who are outside of our “bubbles”.  We will not yet be singing or doing a lot of speaking in unison.  

Wafers and wine or grape juice will be available for you to pick up as you enter the worship space, and we will not have printed bulletins.  The bulletins will continue to be emailed out and if you want to follow along, you can print them at home, or you can download them onto a tablet or a phone.  The service will also be a little shorter than usual as we want to minimize the risk of spreading germs.

If you don’t feel ready to return to church, then please wait.  If you wake up on a Sunday morning and aren’t feeling well or you have a fever, please stay home.  If you are high risk, please continue to stay home.  We will continue to have our online worship services as well. If I am not well, I will stay home, and you as a gathered congregation will watch the online service together.

With all of this said, I also want to remind you that we will continue to watch the number of Covid-19 cases in the county, and should they increase as things are opening back up, we may need to scale back down.  We truly hope that won’t happen, and we are committed to doing our part to keep people as safe as possible.

It feels good that we will be gathering again on Sunday.  I am very much looking forward to seeing each of you as we return!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 

 

Love in Christ,

Pastor Kathy Morris

Verse of the Day

Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER ABANDON YOU,” so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?” — Hebrews 13:5-6 (NASV)
