Suspension of all church activities

Greetings to allI hope this finds you well and save.
I regret to inform you that based on the strong recommendation of the Michigan Conference of the United Church of Christ all church activities are officially suspended until the end of April.
As I have mentioned previously based on current health concerns I encourage you to be diligent in your self care including hand washing, covering when coughing, avoid large gatherings, etc. 
It is in these uncertain times that we are reminded that we are called to be the face of Christ to those who are in need. Make a call, send an email, check in on the elderly and those who live alone. Respect each other at the store by not excessive buying. Remember other people need the essentials as well. Respect each other’s voice and space. And remember what we do for the least of those we do for God as well.
And most importantly be kind to one another.
Take care of yourself, Peace, Ken

He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what is required of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd. -Jalaluddin Rumi, poet and mystic
