Message From the Pastor

To: Sodaville Church Family

From: The Church Leadership Team

 

 

Dear Family,

 

 We met on the morning of May 26, 2020 – masked and all, to seek wisdom and guidance from the Holy Spirit in regards to reopening. We spent time waiting on the Lord in prayer and the Bible under whose authority we met. After the time in waiting on the Lord, we were unanimous in the decisions that were made. The decisions were made after discussing information from the CDC, the Superintendent, and zoom meetings with the local ministers. While like many of you, we want to re-gather as soon as possible, but we do not want to think of ourselves but rather the other members of this body.

 

Speaking on the behalf of the team, I want to assure that we acted carefully, humbly and prayerfully with one passion – the unity of the Body (Ephesians 4:3). We came and acted together as your servants, not as your masters. As a result, the following decisions were made:

 

1. Due to steps required and desired to open with confidence, it was determined that we set July 5 (the first Sunday of the month), as our opening date. This would give us a better outlook on the result of the earlier openings.

 

2. The sanctuary must be rearranged to assure appropriate seating.

 

3. Because we believe that there will be those who choose to stay home, it was decided that steps are required to live stream our service live. This will require equipment, and more time is required. 

 

4. Purchase of streaming license for using copyright music beyond the church.

 

5. Last but by no means least, seating, how many services, cleaning beyond what is presently done.

 

As you can see, reopening must be responsibly done, and I appeal to you in the gentleness of Christ, that you prayerfully bear with us as we continue to prepare for reopening.

 

On behalf of the team, I remain,

 

 

Yours because His,

Pastor Winston Thurton
