Worship Gatherings: Sundays @ 9:30 AM | Wednesdays @ 6:30 PM

Public Service Announcement | August 15, 2020

Church family,

In the course of this past week between August 10-12, each of the elders have had close contact with an active COVID-19 case and have been asked to quarantine. For us, this happened mid-week and not during our regular services. Each of us were made aware on Friday, and since then we’ve been in close contact with the Dent County Health Department to understand how we should proceed. We will be quarantining as requested. We believe this is the appropriate course of action.

While the elders quarantine, we don’t believe canceling our Sunday gatherings is warranted. We believe that everyone will make the best decisions for themselves and their families. The live-stream will continue to be available as it has been. This Sunday, August 16, Pastor Noah will still be preaching, just through video. However, Wednesday worship will be discontinued until September. During our quarantine, each of us remain available for phone calls, texts, Facebook, etc. If you need to reach one of us, by all means reach out.

We want you to know that this is not a cause for discouragement, but a time for the Body of Christ to rally and cry out Jesus. Though among the elders we each have our own thoughts and opinions about quarantining, we believe for the sake of unity in the Body it is best that we do this. Pray for us, pray for the church, pray for our community. This will pass and the Church will remain, so work eagerly to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3).

Much Love in Christ
NHC Elders
