2020 Coronavirus Impact

To all of the Sandy Mount United Methodist Church family,

We have received many recent communications that will directly affect our worship services and all activities at the church and it’s ministries. Based on the recommendation of our governor and our bishop, the Sandy Mount United Methodist Church building will be closed for two weeks beginning March 15 through March 28. The current plan is to conduct in-person worship services beginning March 29.

While worship services are of key importance to our community, many outside groups also use our building throughout the week. With the increased number of people in and out of the building, and the fact that we have many folks who may have compromised immune systems, the risk is simply too great to gather together for worship services or ministries in the short term. Your health and safety are of key importance to all of us.

My plan is to offer sermons for the next two weeks to be posted on our website, and to creatively live stream our contemporary worship services through our Facebook live feed. While we haven’t figured all of this out yet, I am confident in our TechTeam! I will also be working with our organist to perhaps enhance a traditional option of worship and offer this as well.

I will greatly miss gathering together for worship. However please know I am available to you and will be checking in with folks as much as possible. My greatest fear would be for worship together to cause harm rather than good.

I hold you all in my prayers. Please feel free to contact me – I will limit in-home visits but we can always talk by phone.

Blessings to all,
Pastor Kathy
