From RLC Executive Council and Pastor Corey - January 19, 2022:
Last night, (Tuesday, January 18) the RLC Church Council met via Zoom, reviewed the COVID numbers for Warren County, and voted unanimously to continue worshiping online for the next two weeks (January 23 and 30).
The number of new cases and the positivity rate are now dropping and we are hopeful that in a few more weeks we might be able to return to in-person worship, with the probable addition of some added safety protocols. Our number one goal in this decision was to keep people safe and to do our part to help slow the spread of the Omicron variant. The council will review the situation again in two weeks.
From RLC Executive Council and Pastor Corey - January 7, 2022:
Resurrection Lutheran Church is suspending in-person worship for January 9 and 16.
We based our decision on the extremely high volume of cases caused by the contagiousness of the Omicron variant of COVID in our county. The number of new cases per week in Warren County are higher than they have ever been and are continuing to rise, including a positivity rate of 29%. Moving back to online-only worship allows us to take care of ourselves and our community, with the hope that such measures will also slow the spread and provide some relief to exhausted health care workers.
Sunday School will be canceled for as long as we are not worshiping in-person. During this time, meetings led by the church will return to Zoom. If you have a meeting scheduled during the next two weeks, please contact Pastor Corey so that a Zoom link can be set up for you.
We will reassess our ability to worship in-person at the end of these two weeks and will communicate to everyone those decisions as soon as possible. Stay safe and pray that this surge will end soon.
When Jesus was asked which is the greatest commandment, He said to “Love the Lord your God…and love your neighbor as yourself.”
