Many of you at CVMC are a part of a small group that meets outside of the church. We have encouraged our small group leaders to use “Zoom” to meet during this time, but I know that it has been difficult for everyone to get together. Based on the Governor’s recommendation to allow groups of 25 people or less to gather, small groups will be able to resume meeting. Your small group leader should be contacting you to begin meeting in person again.
Youth Ministry (Refuge)
Our Youth Ministry will begin meeting in person beginning Wednesday, May 13th. In order to comply with Governor Holcomb’s recommendations for church services, there will be no food, drinks offered.
In conclusion, I mention on Sunday, May 3rd, that while we are all in the same storm, we are not all in the same boat! We understand that there are varying opinions regarding this pandemic and how our country and CVMC leaders have responded to it. However, as Christians we must agree that we are called to love, respect, and honor each person regardless. Jesus said,
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
– John 13:34-35
Let’s do our best to honor and obey Christ’s words as we navigate this, hopefully, final leg of the journey
