To: Members and Friends of East Granby Congregational Church
Date: July 30, 2020
Grace and peace to you from our church’s leadership, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
This message is a promised follow-up to each of you with information about your church’s on-going response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Below is the information regarding the decisions we have made in the interest of the health and safety of our congregation, staff, and community.
“Out of an abundance of caution” and following governmental guidelines, the EGCC Council has extended the EGCC building closure time frame for worship and in-person activities until September 1, 2020 at the earliest. The building remains locked with continuing access granted only to the Friend to Friend Food Pantry Board of Directors and individual clients one person at a time following Social Distancing guidelines.
We will NOT hold in person worship in the building. We invite you to worship with us each Sunday morning on our website (www.egchurch.org). The new weekly service will be available beginning Sunday morning and will be available until the next week’s service is published.
Please share your messages of support with others whom you would normally see at worship, and others who may be even more isolated due to the COVID-19 situation. We will be reaching out by telephone, to those we know don’t have access to emails. You can also help us, by sharing the information in this email with your friends who don’t communicate via computer.
Please remember that even though our church facility is closed, we are still responsible for meeting our financial commitments, and paying our bills. Your continuing gifts and tithes to the church, using the Donate button on our website, via mail to our P.O. Box 390, or through automatic withdrawal from your bank accounts are important, and will be greatly appreciated, as always.
We will continue to be in communication with you during this time, and we are keeping each and all of you in our prayers each day. We look forward to being with you again in worship and fellowship, when it is safe to do so.
Please communicate with us if you have questions or concerns.
In God’s grace,
Dave Harrold, Moderator Pam Turner, Vice Moderator
