Worship During COVID:
10AM Online Only
Upon the recommendation of our Bishop, Thomas J. Bickerton, and in consultation with the Nichols UMC COVID-19 Task Force, we suspended in person worship and ministry activities through the end of the year. While our in person attendance has been small, and everyone has followed our guidelines, we recognize that inside gatherings pose a greater health risk to our church members and our staff. With the growing spread of this virus in our country, region, and community, it is with much thought and prayer that we have made this decision. Continue to pray that the vaccines are effective soon and that we can resume many of our favorite activities.
We have many plans to make this an extra special Advent & Christmas experience even as we are only online. While most of us don’t have our own Advent wreaths, feel free to bring a candle to your worship space each week and light it as the wreath is lit.
May God bless us regardless of how we worship these days. Pastor David
