El Morro Church of the Nazarene
Welcome to El Morro
"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord" Psalm 122:1
Greetings from Pastor Daren!
I'm excited to announce that the path has been cleared for us to begin to reconvene for worship services! So during the month of June (and beginning on June 7) we will be providing "Worship on the Lawn" Services at 10:45 at our church. Everyone is welcome, including children and we invite you to dress casual and bundle-up in case the "June-gloom" starts creeping in. For health reasons, we encourage you to bring your own chair (although we will also provide chairs) and we ask that everyone be mindful of social distancing guidelines. In case you're wondering about the rationale for meeting outside:
There are a number of state guidelines that are in place for a 21 day period and one of those guidelines is to meet outside if possible. In doing so, inside-related guidelines become less of a concern.
Some people are more willing to meet outside than inside at this point. A survey of over 400 church families in the area found that 70% said they would be willing to return at this time for worship services if provided outside while only 20% said they would be willing to return at this time if worship services were provided inside.
I am convinced that there is no perfect time or perfect plan for re-engaging as a church, but I'm excited to provide this opportunity to gather together again for worship. We recognize that people will begin to reconvene at varying paces, so we will continue to provide the same off-campus ministry that we've been provided, including our weekly online messages.
Thank you for your faithfulness and stay well!
