Church Update 11/11/20

Church family,

I wanted to reach out to all of you to let you know where we are at in our church and community. There has been a strong rise in COVID-19 cases in not only Walla Walla County but also in Waitsburg.

The Washington State Health Department has asked that individuals limit their group size to under 5 for the next few weeks to limit transmission of this disease. Due to an abundance of caution we have decided to temporarily move back to online services only.

I know that this may come as a disappointment because of the excitement that was evident during our first gathering after 8 months, but I want you to know that this decision came after faithful prayer, examination of the climate we are in, and the direction God would have us walk.

I know that if we get ahead of this now that hopefully we can return for some amazing God-filled Christmas services. I ask that you pray for the leadership of our church as this was not an easy decision to make.

I also want you to know that this doesn’t come from any place of fear but out of love for our neighbor and awareness of God’s path for us.

We will still be streaming live services at 10AM on our church Facebook page, which will then be emailed out to our church family to watch during the week. All of our sermons are also uploaded to YouTube under our Waitsburg Christian Church account.

Thank you all for your patience as we navigate these unprecedented waters that we are in. Please continue in your prayers for guidance and we will inform you as changes happen. Thank you also for your understanding in this. We love you all dearly.

Senior Pastor
