Church Events and Worship Canceled through March 31, 2020.

Haskins Community Church Council met after worship to discuss how to faithfully and responsibly respond to the Coronavirus pandemic.

In light of what we know about this issue and those most vulnerable, we have decided to discontinue all church events and worship through March 31, 2020. That day, Council will hold an online meeting to determine if it is prudent to reopen the church at that point, or not.

The Council and myself did not make this decision lightly, but found that it truly was the only responsible course of action to protect our church members and the community at large. We know that God's love and grace will get us through this, as the Risen Lord walks beside us in these times of uncertainty and fear. I firmly believe that good will come out of even this crisis, and that the best of humanity will be seen in Haskins, and I pray, around the world.

The work and ministry of the church will continue, but in different ways. Laura and I will have limited hours in the office, so we will work primarily from our homes. Please be watching your emails for devotions, articles, and thoughts each day, and also for invitations/links to worship (which I will record and send) and a new Bible Study I will begin later this week via ZOOM. I will email this information (including ZOOM instructions) in the coming days. I invite you to begin intensely supporting each other through prayer, sending cards, making phone calls/facetime, etc.

Some church members have already volunteered to deliver meals/groceries/medical supplies to church and community members as the need arises. Hayley Studer will be heading up this ministry, and you can notify her or myself with any needs you or neighbors have.

While we are working our way through these unchartered waters, please continue to be the faithful givers you have always been. If you prefer, you can sign up for on-line giving on our website, or can mail in checks for tithes and offerings. We have already reduced our spending to essential items only, and will be the best stewards we can of the resources you choose to give. Thank you in advance for your faithfulness to HCC.

These are unprecedented times. But our God is the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow, and we are assured that God's love and faithfulness endures forever.

In the Peace of Christ,
Pastor Jenny
