COVID & THE CHURCH
We want you to know that the church council met this week (as of 6/1) to consider the new Massachusetts and UCC conference guidelines to consider as we develop a plan to reopen the church. A working group has been formed to consider all aspects of church use. They will gather to create a strategic plan for reopening. This group includes clergy, staff and representation from many ministries in the church. The goal is to present the plan to the council on June 16 for its consideration and adoption. Such a plan will include procedures for in person worship in our sanctuary and guidelines for both church members and outside groups that use our facility. In the meantime, we will continue to offer our worship online and meet remotely for church business and fellowship. We will use the Looking Ahead each week to announce any activities you might want to be a part of during this in-between time. If you have any questions or suggestions please contact Rev. Jim Matarazzo or Jean Feldkamp, moderator.
In these challenging times many people are doing amazing work to meet the needs of our changing circumstances. Below you will find a link to resources that are available from Andover Newton Seminary and the Southern New England Conference of the UCC. We hope you will find something in these resources to meet your particular need.
