Postponing Youth Group 11.1

Hey All,

We are going to postpone our youth group gathering for this upcoming week 11.1.20.

Some youth that attended on 10.18 will still be self isolating this upcoming Sunday evening, and, due to the proximity of the last exposure, postponement seems like a good idea generally. As COVID numbers rise in our area, our PCHC Guidance Board will be re-evaluating our policies about gathering generally, which might mean we don’t have our last few gatherings scheduled before my leave.

I can appreciate this might be disappointing and an unwelcome possibility for you all and your youth. I feel that way as well; this was a part of my new job for which I was most excited. I’ll also say for myself, this last week was quite a scare. It’s hard knowing that even following the guidelines from our healthcare professionals (like the Drzick family did) and CDC gathering guidelines (like we did at youth group), we are still at risk. That risk feels significant, as I’m sure it did to those of you who had to isolate this week and coming week.

Please know I am committed to figuring out a way for us to move forward together in the upcoming months and years. It seems like we have a while to go before we can gather how we’d most like to, and I know there is a way to gather that is safe, in line with health guidelines, and Christlike. It might take a beat to figure that out together.

Please reach out if you need to!
