The Lord has been kind to our church during a unique and trying year. We are thankful as we look back, and as we continue to move forward as a congregation. The Session recently approved the plan below for increased openness in the coming months. Our original six guiding principles continue to shape our thinking. We have sought to faithfully and prayerfully lead with these in mind: glorify the Lord and honor His word, love our neighbors, uphold the importance of gathered corporate worship, honor the governing authorities, respect the consciences of brothers and sisters, and walk humbly recognizing we don’t know what we don’t know. The plan outlined below may need to be adjusted, and in such a scenario we will communicate the reasons.
Leaders for Growth Groups and URC ministries will be working with staff and elders if they anticipate disruption to their ministry from the changes above.
Thank you for your patience, perseverance, and prayerfulness as we continue to move forward together glorifying Christ and growing in grace. We are blessed with a great church and an even greater Savior.
With much love,
The Session of University Reformed Church
