Returning to Live Worship Update
After hearing from the medical community and giving careful consideration to the Covid-19 cases in Iowa and Black Hawk County, the Administrative Council voted unanimously not to return to live worship at the present time. This was a difficult decision to make since we all miss being together, but it was felt that it is still a risk and it is not safe to return. The Council will meet again in two weeks to monitor the situation. The building will also continue to be closed for any meetings. All teams that need to meet are asked to have a Zoom meeting or a physically distanced outdoor meeting.
These are unprecedented times. We recognize that many of you are lonely and feel isolated from your church friends. It is challenging to all of us as we continue to look for ways to stay connected. Even though this is an extremely difficult time, it is important to remember that we do not have to be physically together to truly be the church. A special thanks to all of you who continue to reach out and offer love and support to others. Together, with God’s help, we will make it through this and our church will emerge even stronger.
-Pastors Leonard Harmon, Carol Teare and members of the Administrative Council (David Palmer, Marshal Iehl, Anne Lange, Dianne Van Gorder, Clare Palmer, Dwayne Price, Susan Price, and Marcia Street)
Services will continue to be offered online on our FBC Waterloo Iowa YouTube channel.
