Public in person worship/meetings are suspended until further notice

The following is an excerpt from a letter from Bishop Malone:

Worship
We strongly urge all of our United Methodist churches to suspend in-person worship until we hear that it is safe to gather again.

Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton have mandated no gatherings of more than 50 people and strongly encouraged none above 10, as well as closing and restricting businesses.  

Painful as it is, we are suspending in-person worship to save lives. We do not know how long this will need to last in order to protect others from this highly contagious virus that is more deadly to some than others.

 

Pastor Karen is honoring this directive and LUMC public worship is suspended.  Pastor Karen will be in recording worship that can be viewed on our Worship Page.

Meetings
All in-person meetings at the Conference and district levels are either postponed or being held virtually until we hear that it is safe to gather again. We strongly urge churches to do the same. All Spring District Conferences are postponed until it is safe to have such large gatherings. It is premature to make any decisions about Annual Conference at this point.  The Commission on General Conference has released a statement announcing the postponement of General Conference 2020. Please pray for Commission members as they work to schedule new dates.
