We are First
Presbyterian church of Ionia
You are welcome…Really!!
In view of the directives of national and state public health officials and the collective will of those who stand most at risk from a potential outbreak of the coronavirus, we have decided to suspend worship services and all activities at the church from today (March 17) until Sunday, March 29.
Such drastic measures are far from ideal for us. I want us to be aware during this crisis that our needs for spiritual care are at least as important as those for security and medicine. We have in our congregation single, divorced, and widowed persons for whom the policy of “social distancing” may easily give rise to a set of problems as painful as that posed by infection of the virus. We should not underestimate the need for human connection and the extent to which our meeting together for public worship and fellowship meets that need. I do not want anyone of our members and friends to feel neglected and abandoned during these unusual times. I encourage you to stay connected with one another, as well as communicate to me the names of those whom you think I should call. And, of course, feel free to reach out and call me at 616 610-5982.
One way I intend to stay connected is to continue to prepare worship services, together with messages, for the next two Sundays and livestream them on the church’s Facebook (FB) page. You may visit the church’s FB at 10 AM on Sunday to participate “virtually” in the liturgy. Click here to link to our Facebook page.
Please keep me and one another in your prayers as we navigate together the days that lie ahead.
Serving our faithful God together with you,
