The leadership of Imani MCC has been closely monitoring the news regarding the coronavirus pandemic. We are a small church and our usual numbers at our worship services and other activities are significantly lower than the numbers initially mentioned regarding gatherings to be avoided. For as long as that was the case, we felt comfortable to continue meeting with several safety-conscious changes in our procedures in recent weeks.
However, as things continue to evolve, at this point we believe it to be in the best interests of all concerned to streamline our normal activities for the rest of March while we continue to closely monitor this situation.
We will continue to offer spiritual support on Sundays at 10 a.m. via Facebook LIVE. If you have a particular need for in-person ministry, the church will be open, for about an hour, at that time. However, we look forward to fellowship with the majority of you virtually.
During this period, to avoid unnecessary personal contact, we will not provide our regular hospitality services (i.e., refreshments). We recognize that, for many, the impacts of the current circumstances include the loss or reduction of income. Members and friends who are able are encouraged to submit your tithes and offerings electronically via PayPal: paypal.me/ImaniMCC or Cash App: $ImaniMCCofNC.
Before the end of the month, we will update you with our plans for moving forward into April; based on the information available at that time. Please know that we are in fervent prayer, daily, for each and every one of you.
Grace and Peace Be with You!
Pastor Marilyn Bowens
