In-Person Gatherings Are Suspended

November 19, 2020

In the spirit of love and service, the College View Church wants to avoid adding undue risk to volunteers, staff, members, and community guests who walk through our doors. To that end, the church board has voted to temporarily suspend all in-person gatherings (including worship services) through December 13th, at which time they will re-evaluate the situation. We will continue with our online options for worship and Sabbath Schools.

This decision was made in light of the community health crisis of our county but also the changing circumstances in our own church family. Many volunteers have expressed their reluctance or unavailability to serve because of the pandemic; more than a dozen people within our congregation are known to be currently infected with COVID-19, with even more people are in quarantine because of exposure. A few folks in the church family are unwilling to wear masks while in the church or at church gatherings, which is a condition for our staying open as a safe and welcoming place.

One exception to this "pause period" is the Pathfinder food drive, which will continue through Sabbath, and the Pathfinder Club will be sorting the goods for the Good Neighbor Community Center to pick up this Sunday ahead of Thanksgiving. Your donations of non-perishable food items can be dropped off in the main lobby Sabbath morning and will directly bless a family in need.

While in-person gatherings are suspended, your ministry leaders are intent on offering creative alternatives to fulfilling our whole-church vision: Worshiping God. Growing Together. Living Out God's Love.
