Good Friday Afternoon All,
Once again, it's Friday and Brother Jim and I have discussed 'what our church service at Hutchison United Methodist Church will be this coming Sunday, August 3rd'. Two things to REMEMBER: 1) it's communion Sunday and we'll be using the 'prepackaged elements' as we did last month, and 2) we'll have an "administrative meeting" right after the service so please come prepared. No food will be served. You've all heard/read as to the conditions and recommendations we are expected to follow to once again meet in our little church. Brother Jim and I feel that we've been doing (as a congregation) these things each week and that we CAN safely meet as we've been doing. Obviously, for all of this to work for us, WE MUST CONTINUE to observe/adhere to these requested guidelines (wear a mask, maintain social distancing, etc.) as we've been doing. I reiterate: PLEASE CONTINUE to WEAR your mask, gloves if you have them, and use sanitizer/disinfectant as you deem necessary. ALSO, just same family members occupying the same pew and keep the requested distance apart as much as possible. Folks, just like before, we need YOUR cooperation in helping to stay within compliance to these guidelines. Our church service will begin at 11:00 a.m.. Hope that you can attend with us, but DO NOT if YOU don't feel safe in doing so.
When you call around today and tomorrow to check on each other, PLEASE PASS the WORD around among members of our congregation regarding this requested procedure for our church service for this coming Sunday. Also, let's continue to Pray for our Great Country as we continue to deal with this 'coronavirus' pandemic. May God continue to Bless us ALL.
In Christian Love,
Earl B. Sosby, Jr. Chair-PPRC for 2020
