UPDATED 9.9.2020:

As the elders stated in their message last week our situation and response to Covid-19 will need to remain fluid in the weeks to come.  Unfortunately this week we learned that Margie Newton (Pastor Doug's wife) has now also tested positive for the virus.  The Newtons have been in quarantene since Andres' diagnosis but just to be safe the elders have decided to remain virtual again for this coming Sunday service instead of the Drive-In service that we had initially planned.

Since Doug is a leader of one of our Engagement Groups as well, we have also decided to postpone the first meeting of the groups until October to make sure everyone is able to stay healthy and safe.  Group A will first meet Wednesday, October 7th, Group B will meet Sunday, October 4th and Group C will meet Saturday, October 3rd.

We truly appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate these unprecidented circumstances.

If you have any questions you can always feel free to reach out to us at info@crimsonway.org.

Blessings!

The following is an update from our elders.

Sent on September 1, 2020

Dear Crimson Way Church,

 

These past few months of living with Covid-19 have certainly been challenging for everyone. As a church, we’ve been very thankful for God’s goodness and our congregation’s cooperative spirit so that we’ve been able to keep Sunday services going each week, virtually at first, and then moving to drive-in and then later to in-person services over the past 3 months. We have also been able to gradually restart some of the key church ministries along the way as well. As we’ve continually reminded ourselves, the situation across the world remains very fluid and we’ve seen infection rates rise and fall throughout our summer.

 

We’ve communicated that we as church we will remain flexible and would respond in accordance with the situation our church finds itself in at any point in time.

 

With that being said, we’d like to let you know that one of our elders, Andres, has unfortunately tested positive for Covid-19 this past weekend.

 

Andres was not at church on Sunday but some of you may have had contact with Andres last week at our prayer meeting.

 

As a leadership team, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to immediately switch to virtual meetings for the next 2 weeks to stop any potential spread among the congregation. So far there have been no additional positive tests and we’d like to keep it that way.

 

In accordance with the quarantine guidelines of the CDC, we encourage everyone who has had contact with Andres since and including Wednesday last week, to stay home for 14 days after your last contact. The same holds true if you’ve had contact with any person who has COVID-19. Also, watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. If possible, stay away from others, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.

 

The next two Wednesday prayer meetings will be held over Zoom call (the link will be posted on our website's event page at crimsonway.org/events). Our Men’s and Women’s connect groups, Youth and Young Adults will not meet in person this week or next.

 

Our upcoming Sunday service on September 6, 2020 will be a fully virtual service.  Please join us online as we will not be allowing any in-person attendance. The live stream can be accessed directly from our website or via our YouTube channel.

 

Currently, we are planning an outdoor service for Sunday September 13, 2020 with the hope of being back in the building on September 20, 2020.

 

We will re-assess each week to ensure that we take the correct steps to keep our church body safe and healthy. We may need to make further adjustments to this plan and our church gatherings as needed.

 

For those who are involved in our engagement groups, we are assessing whether we need to make adjustments to the first meeting days, currently scheduled to start in the week of September 7th, 2020. We’ll be communicating any adjustments within the course of the week.

 

Please be praying for Andres and his family as they navigate the days ahead. Praise God Andres has only experienced mild symptoms and is in good spirits. Please continue to keep our church body in prayer as well.

 

Please email the office at info@crimsonway.org with any questions or comments that you may have or if there are any specific needs that we can assist with.

 

We love you all and are praying with and for you in this time.
