An Important Update From Pastor Kenny as of 4/21


Governor Brian Kemp announced the reopening of Georgia’s economy in Phase 1 of the plan that President Trump unveiled last week. The plan allows for churches to hold corporate worship services as long as CDC guidelines and recommendations are followed. However, Governor Kemp urged churches to continue using good judgment and worshiping online. Additionally, our Bishop and Cabinet released a statement recommending that United Methodist Churches stay with online and streaming worship services until May 13th.

I miss you! We all miss worshiping together. But we will hold fast to the guiding principles we put in place from the beginning. We will act Responsibly and Reasonably. The responsible and reasonable action is to continue to safeguard our congregants while staying connected and caring for our community through online worship, virtual small groups, and intercessory prayer.

Our staff and leadership have already begun thinking through a plan for reopening our facilities and we will share it with you in the days ahead. In the meantime, please know that I love you and miss you.
