Hey Sandhurst – 


Summer Schedule:

8:30 Service (masks required for all) fellowship hall

10:15 Service (masks optional) sanctuary: KIDS programming 0-4th grade


Crazy times! It’s a pandemic – and it seems it’s three steps forward, and two back. 

WHAT WE ARE DOING

We currently have a touchless, social distanced, mask required service at 8:30 in the fellowship hall and a touchless, social distanced, mask optional service at 10:15 in the Sanctuary, though we encourage entering and exiting with masks. 

WHY WE ARE DOING IT

GRACE: There is no one size fits all response to Covid. Some are on lockdown. Some are full forward. Most are in the middle somewhere. We will stay open, seek to meet safely, to reduce the risk of infection, and use common sense. An article in Harvard Business Review (May 2020), We Shouldn’t Wait for a Breakthrough in the Covid-19 Pandemic, reminds us that “big problems typically get tackled through a series of small solutions.” So rather than sit waiting for a small set of big solutions (e.g. vaccine), let’s move forward with a big set of small solutions (masks, hand washing, outdoor activities, smaller groups, etc…). You do what your conscience requires – but offer grace to others who have a different stance.

LIKE PAUL SAID in Romans 14:

Welcome one another, do not quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the [other] eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another?

So as we have freely received grace from God, let us show grace to one another in a tough time. 

May the world know us by our love.

We are with you every step! 


Adam, for the Elders and Staff
