Update on In-Person Worship for January
In the face of new COVID-19 cases rising sharply around us fueled by the recent “Omicron” variant, and in consultation with Pastor Seok-Hwan, it is out of an abundance of caution and with heavy hearts that we feel compelled to “pause” our offering of in-person Sunday morning worship services. The pause begins this Sunday, January 9, and will last at least through Sunday, January 30. “The Ark” will be closed during the month of January, as well. We will continue to monitor the situation, leveraging guidance from the CDC, the state, our local communities, and the New England Conference of the United Methodist Church, and will strive to resume in-person services as soon as it is felt safe to do so.
While we are pausing formal worship service offerings, the sanctuary will be open on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am for anyone wishing to come for informal prayer or worship time -- those entering the church must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status and continue to follow our current guidelines for in-person worship.
