The Bible says in Proverbs 19:21 “Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.”
We all had plans that did not include COVID-19 this year. But the Lord in His sovereign will already knew that the coronavirus health crisis was coming. Thought we may not understand how or why it came God’s plans for the church will prevail.
Several months ago, church leaders across our country made plans to pivot to a digital strategy. Now as we consider reopen in-person Sunday services we must once again make plans.
At St John, I am prayerfully working through many important decisions with much prayer and many counselors. Along with our leadership team, we are reviewing local, state, and national guidelines, and have assembled a plan for a phased return to in-person worship.
To that end, You can download the St John Phased ReOpen Plan, from the link below. Please read so that you are familiar with the our return to in person worship services plans. Also, be aware that we will have limited seating in keeping with social distancing guidelines of 25% capacity not to exceed 100 people.
There will be a registration page setup for you to RSVP and select the Sunday that you plan to attend worship. Please stay connected to our website https://www.stjohnmbcbakersfield.org/ for more information.
