ALL GATHERINGS + ACTIVITIES ARE SUSPENDED
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
“For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.”
With the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 crisis and at the request of the CDC as well as local and national health officials, all gatherings and activities at ESBC are suspended until further notice. This decision was made by the ministerial staff in consultation with the deacons. This includes the suspension of Wednesday and Sunday activities. We are eager to resume all services as soon as possible, and will be monitoring the situation closely. Once it is safe to gather together physically, we will make an appropriate announcement at that time using our normal channels – this website, our Facebook page, our weekly newsletter and e-blasts. For more information on how to sign up for these channels, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then we will be undertaking efforts to remain close as a congregation through delivering of services online, encouraging virtual group meetings, and contacts and communication with our members.
The church staff is also heeding the advice of the CDC to practice social distancing. As long as it is safe to do so, at least one member of our ministry staff will be available in the church office to answer your phone calls. While we may not be available in the church office, we are available by cell phone and by email.
