Dear Kenwood Family:
It has been a joy to stay connected digitally and by phone over the past couple of months. While we continue to encourage digital worship, we are also excited to offer in-person worship again. Praise God!
We understand that some are hungry to see and fellowship together while others need to continue to worship at home for personal and family reasons. Psalm 133:1 says, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.” God reigns over us all. We ask that we all exercise wisdom and be considerate and loving to the needs of others.
We have prayed, researched, reviewed state and national governmental websites and orders, surveyed the congregation, and consulted with medical practitioners. Since the virus is not yet completely understood, we are proceeding slowly, carefully, and humbly. As information on the virus is ever-evolving, all procedures are subject to change.
Starting June 14, we will have four 9:30 AM worship options.
Sunday School classes will continue online and will not meet in the building at this time as most rooms are too small for social distancing and cannot be used more than once without thorough cleaning. (Your leader may adjust the Zoom time to best fit the needs of the class.) Children’s classes and child care will resume at a later date for the same reasons. Please note that the following areas of the building will be closed: the Children’s Wing entrance door, the Children’s Wing, the Fellowship Hall, and the Chapel.
Please be respectful of these guidelines. We desire to honor God through our unity.
What is most important is that we continue to worship and grow in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are glad that this can happen on-line and at the Kenwood campus. Please worship responsibly based on your individual and family needs.
We look forward to sharing more news soon. Please feel free to reach out to the Deacons, Elders, and staff at any time.
With love from your Elders,
David Palmer, Scott Burns, Don Angel, Rick Davis, John Dobbs,
Eiro Fukudo, Steve Marosi, Susan Rice, Jeff Wallace
