The Lehigh Presbytery’s Executive Team strongly encourages all sessions to suspend public worship and all other gatherings until it is safe to meet together.
This does not mean we are “canceling church.” We cannot cancel church. The church we love, the Church of Jesus Christ, can be neither canceled nor closed, for it remains the church whether we are gathered or dispersed. We all know in our heads that the church is not just a building, but we must also behave as though we believe that in our hearts. The church is a community of faith with a mission to which we are called by God to serve together. Pull out your mission and values statements–that’s the church! By literally emptying our buildings we model deep trust in God’s ability to meet us where we are, regardless of location. In such a time as this, God may be calling us to serve in ways we never would have imagined.
