Grace and Peace to you!
Faithful Shepherd’s session meets regularly to discuss the next steps for our faith community. We will share updates with you here.
The Session of Faithful Shepherd Presbyterian Church met for our regular scheduled council meeting on Monday October 19th. At our previous meeting on September 21st, we established Sunday November 1st as our targeted transition date for worship to return inside our church building.
The discussion of the transition of worship was at the forefront of our meeting. During an in-depth conversation that took into consideration a number of factors and aspects regarding our church and community, the Session decided through a vote that November 1st will not be the date for worship to be held in the church building.
For now, we will continue to worship using our current model of drive-in worship that is simultaneously live-streamed online.
As the pastor and ruling elders of the church, we are mindful and aware that the individual comfort level regarding indoor gatherings, especially worship, vary in the congregation we are called to serve. This decision was made with the health and well-being of all those we are called to serve as our top and heart-felt priority.
Together, as a part of a community, we continue to live out our call as the church in an uncharted and challenging landscape. Together, we will continue to serve you with intelligence, energy, and love during this time.
If you have any thoughts or questions, please reach out to me or any member of the Session. Our next scheduled Session meeting is November 16th.
