April services update from the shepherds

*** UPDATED 3/31/2020 ***

As we move into April our government leaders and health agencies are still strongly recommending that everyone avoid group activities and so for now we will continue to have no assemblies or group activities at the building.

We are thankful for the opportunities we have had to participate in Bible studies and lessons online on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and other times throughout the week. We ask everyone to take advantage of these opportunities to stay connected with each other and to be spiritually edified and encouraged. Please continue to pray for our nation and the world. Pray that our leaders and healthcare providers will make the proper decisions. Check on each other and particularly the elderly to see if they need any assistance. Pray that this crisis will end soon and that we will all remain faithful to God whatever difficulties face us in the days ahead.

As a reminder, there are individual communion sets at the building in the library. Each container has grape juice and a wafer. Please feel free to go by the building and get some for your family.

Plan for Classes

When we are able to resume classes, we plan on picking up where we left off when our classes were suspended. For adult, high school, and middle school classes, we will extend the spring quarter for a sufficient period of time to finish those classes and make adjustments on the length of the summer quarter. We will make similar adjustments to the spring and summer quarters for children’s classes, to allow as much of the curriculum as possible for those two quarters to be covered.

Whitney Loring has planned online classes for the first and second graders. If any other teachers would like to try doing that, Whitney would be glad to share with you how she set it up. Feel free to contact her if you are interested.
