Effective Immediately: 3 Week Suspension
Hello ECC family,
Last night, we made the decision to suspend all church gatherings for the next three weeks (March 17 through April 7), including public worship, small groups, youth group, and ministry teams, as well as rentals. We don’t think that will come as a shock to anyone, as this limitation of gatherings is happening across the country in order to “flatten the curve” of this virus. Once again, this is not a fear-based decision — this is a key way we love our vulnerable neighbours and assist in the efforts to combat Covid-19.
As a Leadership Team, we will communicate by March 31 regarding the continuation or lifting of this suspension. We will, of course, be following the lead of our health authorities on the safety of public gatherings.
In the days ahead, we will provide online worship services and other discipleship resources so that we can make the most of this unique moment, growing in our life in Christ and serving our community in the name of Christ. (If you missed Sunday’s message, find it here.)
During a time like this, communicating is more important than ever. If you know of anyone in our church family who is not receiving this email, please encourage them to sign up at the church website. (You can start by forwarding this email to them.)
Please contact me or Dana if you have any questions, concerns, needs, or would simply like someone to pray with you. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
