Grace and peace from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Bishop Kusserow sent a letter to congregations urging us to take precautions with the increase in Coronavirus cases.

 

The Executive Committee met Wednesday, November 18. Worship is the center of our Christian lives and we want to make that the priority. We also want to make sure that we can celebrate the birth of Jesus together on Christmas Eve.

 

For the next month:

 

-We will continue to have in-person worship at 8:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

 

-Worship will be on Facebook Live. It is currently live at 11:45 a.m. and can also be viewed after for those who prefer to watch the service later. We are working to improve the recording in the sanctuary so that the 8:15 a.m. service can be live including the organ music. We will let you know when this is ready to be implemented. At that time, we will also be posting it on YouTube.

 

-We encourage you to worship with us at home if you are experiencing any Covid symptoms, are in quarantine or in an at risk category.

 

-All other in-person church activities, meetings and education will be suspended for the next month. Groups and meetings are invited to meet on Zoom or through conference call, and we can help set up virtual meetings.


-Advent Devotionals will be posted every weekday in December on our Facebook Page (
https://www.facebook.com/HTLCIrwinPA) and on our website.  If you would like them sent by email, please email Danielle at office@holytrinityirwin.org

 

-The December Tidings will include other ways we can celebrate this advent season.


We will be continuing to evaluate the Covid situation in our area, and will communicate decisions made at the end of the month.  

Blessings to all of you and thank you for your continued support.  Please keep our leadership in your prayers.  These decisions are not easy to make.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Sarah
