06.04.2020 Devotional

Our devotion today is on the book of Job.

In case you don’t remember the story, Job is a healthy and wealthy man. He fears God and turns away from evil. He has a great family. His businesses are successful. He is considered blameless and upright in the eyes of the Lord.

One day, God and Satan are having a conversation, (Click here to read the rest of the story)

Greetings St. Andrew's,

It was recently announced that all houses of worship would be opened as early as this Sunday for worship.

Our United Methodist Bishop has placed safety first and has directed that all of our UM church buildings and spaces will remain closed for gathering until June 15th at the earliest.

At St. Andrew's, our church leaders are currently in the process putting in place plans to reopen in such a way as to not spread the Corona virus and to attend to the safety and spiritual needs of each person.

We will share information on our re-opening as it becomes available.

All things are lawful,but not all things are beneficial.
All things are lawful,’ but not all things build up.”
1 Corinthians 10 :23

Bishop’s COVID-19 Notice #6, May 13, 2020

Worship Suspension and Building Closures Extended through June 15, 2020

As bishop of the Greater Northwest Area of The United Methodist Church, I am extending the suspension of in-person worship in United Methodist Churches and other ministries and the closure of church facilities to all but essential services throughout the Alaska, Oregon-Idaho and Pacific Northwest Conferences through June 15, 2020. This early in the phased reopening process, data on the spread of the virus is inconsistent and inconclusive. This date allows two more 14-day periods during which to assess whether COVID-19 cases are declining or increasing. Our churches will be on the leading edge of protecting public health, but not be on the leading edge of reopening at the risk of increasing exposures, infections and deaths.

Reimagining Life Together

Guidelines for Reopening Buildings and Returning to In-Person Ministry

Linked below is a new document titled Reimagining Life Together. It aspires to provide guidance on the requirements and recommendations for local churches and ministry settings to reopen buildings and return to in-person ministry activities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Reimagining Life Together is a living document subject to change as new information is received about the virus and the best practices to mitigate its spread. We will periodically update this document with modest changes in the interest of perfecting this work. Pastoral leaders will be notified if and when significant changes are made. In both cases, the front page of the document will provide information noting the date of the latest revision.

The document at the bottom of this article "Reimagining Life Together" has a link (it is 26 pages).
