Working Our Way Toward Normal
On September 13, Meadowood took another step toward what church used to look like by allowing Community Groups to resume gathering together in person in our building. Many of these groups have also been able to create a virtual space for those who cannot attend in person to still engage in the community of their small groups.
Because of the importance of community within the church body, we have resumed our groups and encourage attendees to invite others at our worship services to stick around. Some may be uncomfortable doing so, and that's okay. But we feel face-to-face small groups are too important in discipleship to keep them from meeting.
All of our groups (unless your group leader has indicated otherwise) are meeting at 10:30am, immediately after the Sunday morning service concludes.
We know it may feel a bit too soon for you, and that's okay. No one is forced to attend any of our events/activities, and we are happy to provide an online experience for you as we are able.
The good news is we have space for our groups to meet and still adhere to social distancing and other coronavirus guidelines. We also encourage wearing masks while in our facilities, whether anyone is sitting near you or not. It simply helps create an atmosphere of worship with as few distractions as possible.
As a final note, if you do not have a Community Group yet, you are invited to participate in a six-week group led by Pastor Bob Rutherford as he builds on the basic beliefs of Christianity and helps prepare participants to involve themselves in the life of the church. Anyone is welcome to participate!
If you have any questions you would like us to address, please call the church office any time or e-mail executive pastor Jay Ramer.
