A Letter from Our Pastor; 3/14/2020

Dear Friends in Christ,
Keeping with the recommendations of the medical community concerning social distancing as the outbreak of the Coronavirus spreads, our church council has voted to suspend worship and all activities for two weeks. We will reassess the situation and decide again, based on the most current information available.

We believe this is the most responsible and compassionate way to ensure the health and well being of our members and our community. This is the best way to care for  the health care system, our neighbors, and the most vulnerable among us.

At 10:00 on Sunday morning, we will livestream parts of our worship, and encourage everyone to tune in and take part by going online and clicking on this link:

If clicking the link doesn’t work, just copy and paste it into your address bar.

You do not have to have a Facebook account to participate. And if you miss the livestream, the video will still be available to watch at your convenience.

In this difficult time of social isolation, all your church leaders are working hard to ensure that the spiritual and physical needs of our community are met to the best of our ability. We know that some will be struggling with food inadequacy, difficultly getting supplies, loneliness, and other concerns that arise. Please reach out to the church if you need assistance. Contact the church office by phone 203-723-3402, or email gracenaugatuck@yahoo.com, and we will do what we can to help. In the event of a pastoral emergency please use my cell phone 413-335-8122.

 

We encourage everyone to continue making your offerings to support our ongoing ministry. Please mail in your envelopes to 170 Coen St., Naugatuck CT 06770, or drop them in the church mailbox. Thank you for your generosity!

 

I know that all these closures are scary and sad to see. Anxiety and disappointment are growing around us. I know it feels counter-intuitive to close a church in a time of crisis. But I truly believe these are signs of hope, and of a community coming together in spirit for the good of all. Sometimes love looks like an empty pew.

 

Yours in Christ.
Pastor Diane
