Hi Shoreline family and friends,
As your pastor I want to share with you that two of our church members have tested positive for Covid since last Sunday. All indications are they did not contract it at church, but they were at our service. We are not aware of it spreading to anyone else at church at this time. As far as I know they have contacted everyone they have had close contact with. Both of them are resting at home and their families are in quarantine. We certainly will be praying for a quick and full recovery.
As the pandemic is spreading more rapidly around the world during these colder months, we want to be careful to do everything we can to keep it from spreading to others. If you are at high risk with an underlying condition, for the next few weeks I strongly recommend you consider joining us online. We ask that if you do not feel well or have any symptoms that you stay home and worship with us online. For those joining us in person, we have put mitigation efforts in place to greatly reduce the risk of spread if and when someone unknowingly has Covid. I want to ask everyone to be especially cautious in the weeks ahead by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask, and using hand sanitizer.
I want to thank you for the love and unity you have shown as a church as we have walked through this pandemic. Your spirit and joy in a difficult time for the world and our lives has been a source of great joy for me, and a testimony for Christ to our community. I can see God working mightily in our lives. May He be glorified and may He empower us to continue to make disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.
