A lot has changed in our state in a single week. We had planned on trying to meet this Sunday; however, it is obvious that this would not be in the best interests of our congregation. The Mississippi Department of Health has issued new guidelines concerning best practices for churches which include limiting all meetings to no more than 10 people. As such we are canceling service this Sunday on March 22, 2020. We had already canceled our Sunday night and Wednesday night classes and that remains in effect as well.
There will be a board meeting on Wednesday, March 25 at 6:00 PM. During this meeting, we will discuss our in-person gatherings going forward. We will also discuss alternatives for us to maintain fellowship in this difficult time. We will keep you up to date about our decisions through the website, social media, & text.
One last thing. Even though we may not be meeting in person for a few weeks I do want to remind you of a few things. The first being that every Sunday I will be posting a message to the website. And second, the church still needs your support. If you wish to mail in your tithes or offerings, you can do so to:
Lone Star UMC
P.O. Box 166
Collins, MS 39428
I know that the last few weeks have been stressful and the next few are sure to be as well. So, I want to remind you that if you need me for any reason, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am here for you!
