Church Closed and Coronavirus News
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
We are in unprecedented times which means we have to be creative, flexible and work into a new norm in life. Bishop Palmer has recommended that we close down the church for the next two weeks. We will be following his recommendations and closing down the church starting after the Orael “Mickey” Pierce memorial tomorrow March 14th at 3:00p. There will not be Sunday worship services or Sunday school classes on March 15th or 22nd. As you know I have encouraged you all to be in daily prayer over certain topics, and in daily readings. What I am going to do is create a daily vlog based on those prayer topics and scripture readings starting Monday, March 16th. You may be wondering what is a vlog; a vlog is a video blog or a post on a website or social media site. I will be posting these daily Monday through Friday by noon each day on our website at www.woodvilleumc.net and on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/WoodvilleUMC/. For Sunday mornings I am encouraging you to go to a different online place for worship, here is a list of local UMC live stream opportunities (you do not have to have a Facebook account to watch these live streams).
Please keep in mind that with this shutdown we will be running minimal office hours but I will still be available for Pastoral Care needs. If you call the church please leave a voicemail. Laura and I receive all voicemails via email and will get back to you as quickly as possible. Last we will still be accepting your weekly tithes and offerings from either of these two options:
- Mail a check to Woodville UMC 201 West First St Woodville OH 43469
- Through our secure online option at https://tithe.ly/give_new/www/#/tithely/give-one-time/454697
