Due to the continued concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, following a great deal of deliberation, council has decided to cancel all in-person worship services in April. We invite you to continue to listen to the Shepherdcast on Sundays at 9:30 AM, where we continue to bring you sermons from Pastor Scott! Also, watch out for information in the future that we will be posting regarding a special celebration of Easter to take place once services resume!
Additionally, the decision has been made to cancel Shepherd’s Kitchen for the month of April in an effort to protect our workers and those who join us for this community meal.
Webmaster’s Note: Please continue to keep all affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in your prayers. While by Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton’s stay-at-home order there is a clear exemption for religious organizations (which you can read about this and more on COVID-19 from the State of Ohio by clicking here), we are making these scheduling decisions at the church voluntarily based partially on guidance from our synod leadership and in an effort to protect not only our member but our community. While we pray for healing as followers of Christ, we know that it falls on us to follow the wisdom that can only be given to us by God to keep ourselves safe, as we heard in past sermons from Pastor Scott. We will have a singular place on our church website where we will post all COVID-19 related schedule changes at the church in addition to where they are posted on their regular channels. To go there now, please click here. While we participate in social distancing, we hope you will consider supporting organizations in our community that help those in need during this crisis, including through volunteerism if you can do so safely and without putting yourself at risk.
