Message from Pastor: Reopening Church

The President has issued a statement naming churches as “essential” organizations, mandating they reopen over State regulations. I am urging pastors not to follow the politics of this President. God has placed us in position as watchmen (Isaiah 21:11-12). Protecting our people from the damaging consequences of Covid 19 should be our top priority, not the instruction of a modern day demagogue.

There is no one that longs for the restoration of congregational life than I do. However, I would not want the needless death of a parishioner on my heavenly resume. We shall open again, but not until there is reasonable assurance that the time is right and appropriate safety protocols are established. I pray for your wisdom and spiritual insight. “Watchman, what of the night…”
