Pastor Harris and the Southeast Board have been working hard to ensure safe in-person gatherings; however, due to recent increases in COVID-19 infection rates, and consultation with the District Superintendent, we have decided to “press the pause button” on in-person services.
This means that for the time being, our campus is once again closed. Members of the praise team, board, and media/sound will continue to meet on Sundays to provide an online service.
In order to support the policy of social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, we will NOT be having worship, beginning this Sunday November 1 and continuing through the middle of the month, about November 22. We tentatively plan to reopen and come together for a very special Thanksgiving Service on November 25th at 7:00PM.
In doing this, we are showing concern for those who are the most vulnerable in our community, especially our older congregants and those with chronic health conditions. This is how we love our neighbor. Please continue to keep our community and our church in your prayers.
We will continue to communicate with you about ways to stay connected to our church family. We will continue to have Sunday Worship live-stream on Facebook Sundays, starting at 11 a.m. We will also look at how we can support those in our area who will be most affected by these closings (i.e., that do not have Facebook or a means to view the service).
If you would still like to continue your tithes and offerings in the coming weeks, we encourage you to either drop it in the mail - our address is 771 Dunbar Rd. Tallmadge, Ohio 44278 - or submit it online, using our online system located on our website - https://www.southeastnazarene.com/ This will help us keep our financial commitments during these unusual days!
We will continue to stay in touch, and PLEASE take care of yourselves and each other. If you have any pastoral needs, please call any of the pastoral team any time.
God’s grace is sufficient, even for these strange times (2 Cor. 12:9). We love you and we continue to hold you close in our prayers. As Julian of Norwich said: “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well.”
