Greetings Restoration Church!
Happy Thanksgiving! The holidays are here and the times are wacky.
2020 started off in great shape. COVID arrived and we thought a lockdown would be a few weeks long and we would be back to mostly normal life. The election has been particularly contentious this year. Emotions have run hot. Rioting and protesting for various reasons are continuing to disrupt society.
Little did we know what was in store and less do we know about the remaining several weeks of 2020. What we do know is God is still faithful. God is still in control. God is still working for our good and his glory. I have been strengthened and calmed by the study of The Acts of the Apostles this year. The growth of the early church in adverse conditions has shown us how God uses tough times, tough circumstances, and tough leaders to advance the Good News of Jesus Christ through the world.
Times are tough. It appears it will get tougher yet for a time. But be encouraged. The God we serve is sovereign over all! He will preserve his Church. He will be faithful, as he always has. So, Restoration-keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. Fight by getting on your knees to pray. Persevere by reading and meditating on God’s Word. Encourage one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Send an email or text. Make a phone call to someone you have not seen in a while. Pray with them and for them.
2 Timothy 2:2
COVID 19 Mandates & Requirements
The statistics are increasing on COVID data. Sunday morning, the WA state governor announced more restrictions/mandates. The following is an excerpt:
Religious Services are limited to 25 percent of indoor occupancy limits, or no more than 200 people, whichever is fewer. Congregation members/attendees must wear facial coverings at all times and congregation singing is prohibited. No choir, band, or ensemble shall perform during the service. Vocal or instrumental soloists are permitted to perform, and vocal soloists may have a single accompanist. Outdoor services must follow the Outdoor Dining Guidance... applicable to the structure or facility.
This will not affect our current ability to gather. There is a request to not participate in congregational singing. But, you can hum! We are in compliance in all areas. We will continue to monitor how we can best love our neighbors. Gospel Community groups are not recommended under these guidelines.
