We trust that you are paying attention to the developing news about the coronavirus. We are too, and are considering the various scenarios that would prompt us to cancel public services to avoid spread of the virus.
As of this writing, we have not canceled any services. However, we want to encourage you to exercise prudence. If you are sick or have a compromised immune system, please stay home and watch our live video feed. And please participate by filling out the form to let us know you're "here." You'll also be able to participate in the offering by clicking on the offering link.
For those of us who attend the worship gathering, instead of shaking hands we're going to reinstituting the holy kiss. Just Kidding. Please avoid touching. No hand shaking. No hugging. "Air high fives" are good. Lots of smiles. All that stuff. But no touchy.
And seriously, be praying for those affected worldwide, including officials who bear the burden of decisions that affect us all.
Love you all!
Pastor of Sarasota Community Church since 2009.
