Eden Mennonite Church will continue in our current practice of meeting for Worship and Sunday School online and in small groups at least through the end of February. This decision is based primarily on our vision as God’s church: “A people transformed by the Holy Spirit in worship and service, so that through us, God’s grace, love, and peace are made known to the world.” We share God’s love by doing our best to not make the COVID-19 pandemic worse for the most vulnerable and the healthcare system that is in very serious condition. As we consider the situation, we are hopeful that things are moving in the right direction as incidents of new cases are falling and the vaccine is available for those over the age of 65. If you would like to join us for our Zoom services, please contact the church office for the link by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. At this point, the church building will be locked, but may be opened as needed by calling or emailing the church office. We ask that commissions, Sunday School classes, and small groups meet virtually, if possible. If in-person meetings are necessary, please practice social distancing and wear masks. The church office will be open to the public from 8am-12pm Mondays and Fridays only. As always, please take care of yourselves and each other. Wear masks and practice social distancing in public. Get good sleep. Go outside as often as possible. Eat well. Take regular breaks from your smartphones and social media. Pray for your neighbors and do a random act of kindness (rake leaves, bake cookies, leave an encouraging note on their door). And finally, trust and cling to God like a nice, clean pair of underwear.
