Dear Pleasant Grove Family,
As you know, our President and our Governor have declared states of emergency due to the corona virus outbreak. Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson and District Superintendent Dr. Doug Thrasher have urged our United Methodist churches to cancel worship services and other group activities through the end of March. Out of love and concern for our congregation and community that is what we will do.
That doesn’t mean our ministry comes to a halt! It means we find other ways to share the love of Christ with one another and our community in this time of necessary social distancing. I encourage you to do the following during the rest of this month:
v Pray for those who are sick, our church, our community, healthcare providers, and local, state and national leaders during this crisis.
v Stay in touch, check-in with one another. Call, send a text or email to members of our Pleasant Grove family. Let others know you’re thinking of them and ask if they need anything – especially our homebound and older adult members.
v Please call the church at 770-844-7095 if you or someone you know is homebound for any reason and needs food, medicine or supplies delivered or has some other special need.
v Continue to support your church with your financial gifts. We may not be meeting together for a while, but we’re still in ministry. Please mail your offering to our church at 3140 Pleasant Grove Rd. Cumming, GA 30028.
v Go to church online! For the rest of March, on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. we are going to livestream a short devotional service from our sanctuary to our Facebook page and hopefully our website.
v Stay tuned for updates. We’ll be sharing updates via the Prayer Line, email, Facebook and our website at www.pgchurch.org.
My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ: Keep the faith! It will give us the comfort and strength, the courage and compassion we need to get us through this difficult time together. This too shall pass. God is with us.
Grace and peace in Christ,
