Grace and Peace to you, Abundant Life Family!
Seasons come and seasons go, constantly changing, bring with them change, growth, and opportunity. Sometimes we initiate a new season, sometimes others prod us into a new season, but in every season, God has a purpose and a plan.
All churches in California have a new season presented to us with the current mandate to cease meeting indoors due to the COVID pandemic. We will comply with these guidelines, because we are the church, not the building. In all honesty, I was looking for a time for us all to get together in one service just because we need to see each other. We already had a date and methodology determined and were excited about it! So, we are just moving everything up a few weeks and will continue to meet outdoors with no number restrictions for the foreseeable future.
So, here is the overall picture: We will prerecord the Sunday message and worship and present it online at 10AM on our usual platforms. The Church will gather outside in the southwest area of the paved parking lot in chairs physically distanced. We will follow all the protocols that we have previously established for safety and hygiene. The sun will be at everyone’s back, and although there will be some natural shade and a few canopies, you might want to wear a hat. Service will be around an hour, and we will have handouts for the children. If you think you want to sit in your car, not big truck, get there early and we can back you into a place where you can see and hear. These will be very limited in number.
I look forward to seeing all of you in one big, loud, praising and worshipping service on Sunday! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Pastor Kevin or myself.
Blessings to you all as we watch God do something AMAZING!
