Called to “provide that the Word of God may be truly preached and heard…[and] to nurture the covenant community of disciples of Christ” (G-3.0201a,c), the Session is not assuming that reinstating our practices from before the pandemic will serve our community after the pandemic.
We are preparing to nurture the souls of people who have been through an extremely difficult year and a half. For some, a traditional service will be a balm. For others, a more contemporary style might fit. For some, continuing online engagements will be best. And for others, a space to process might be welcome.
