Dear Church Family,
According to Oregon’s Phase Two reopening guidelines, which took effect in Lane County on June 12, 2020, North Park has restarted in-person gatherings on Sunday mornings at 10:45am. These meetings will take place in the lawn as weather permits, since Lane county health resources indicate a severely reduced chance of transmission outdoors. In the event of rain, we will meet in the sanctuary. The sanctuary has enough room to seat 12 households when properly distanced according to state guidelines. We will request that masks be worn while indoors; re-usable masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
We will be broadcasting the gathering via Zoom for those unable to attend in person. Check your email for the link, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A community group has also resumed meeting, which is following the book “The Good and Beautiful Life” by James Smith. The group meets Wednesdays at 6:30pm, outdoors whenever possible. Please email email@example.com to get connected.
Our leaders will be making extra effort to keep in touch with you as we work through this. Please be clear that if you have ANY needs, whether it be financial hardship or someone to get groceries, we want to help however we can.
Friends, make extra effort to care for one another. Be intentional in checking on your neighbors and showing the love of Jesus. This is not a time to be afraid, but a time to act with intention and love; a time to show Jesus through our words and actions of comfort and support.
Watch your email for additional resources. And friends, pray for our neighbors, our authorities and for God’s spirit to lead you to love your neighbors well.
