From the Council Moderatorby Emily Hitchens on March 10, 2020
|New guidance is coming out daily from our public health officials, including specific recommendations for groups of people in the Seattle area who gather regularly — which is us.
We take the common good seriously and recognize how COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) is a collective challenge for us all. Alki UCC will follow current public health guidelines and we are in touch with the Pacific Northwest UCC conference for their recommendations as well.
While our in-person worship services are on hiatus, we are live-streaming worship every Sunday at 10:00 am (see story on Home Page). We are also creating a list of accessible small group opportunities for the congregation. Because this is an issue of public health, all of our gatherings will be subject to the most recent guidelines, which are changing almost daily, and the Church Council. We are committed to keeping our beloved community in authentic relationship with one another.
Holding our impacted sisters and brothers in prayer today.
— The Alki UCC Church Council
