I have spent the past few days closely monitoring news of the rapidly spreading Omicron variant and its impact in our city and country. With this in mind, we will be canceling the in-person Christmas Eve service for the safety and well-being of our staff and community, which is of utmost importance and our primary concern.
You will be able to view the pre-recorded Christmas Eve service from last year and virtual services for December 26th and January 2nd. At the moment, it is our intention to return to sanctuary worship on January 9th, but we will need to see where we are by then and determine the best course forward.
Some of your plans may be changing as well, and that’s just fine. Let it be and don’t fret about it. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, Christ will be right there with you, and I pray that love, peace, hope, and joy will also find you safe and well.
Please know that I am sending you lots of love and all best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Grace and peace,
