Pray Continually…

Continue to pray – For the world and all people.

We know there is craziness in our lives and in our world. And so we must continue the Kingdom of God work to PRAY!

With still so many Coronavirus cases, we aren’t yet back to worship live/in-person, and so we PRAY!

Our ACTS Group (Advent’s Coronavirus Team of Safety) is continuing to meet regularly by Zoom to cautiously and compassionately discuss these matters. PRAY!

Should you have questions, please contact Dave Neely dave.neely@hotmail.com or Pastor Scott scott_lohman@sbcglobal.net to discuss these.

And don’t forget to…

…PRAY!

IMPORTANT news from Advent!

We are Waiting to Return to Church right now, but Check out Ways to Connect!

With an Abundance of Safety
NO LIVE/IN-PERSON WORSHIP AT THIS TIME. Unfortunately, this spike chart to the right does not represent people becoming believers in Christ, or even our stock market accounts, but it signifies that the numbers of Coronavirus cases in North Carolina is spiking. We hit our highest number of cases today (7/11), at 2462, and our 7 day rolling total is nearing 2000 cases per day. The virus is spreading and the numbers are significantly going the wrong direction. Keep praying!

One of the main deciders of our returning to worship, with nearly half of Advent’s populous fitting the “High Risk” category, is the numbers of cases. Also, hospitals have not reached capacity yet, but it could be nearing. That said, our ACTS Group (Advent’s Coronavirus Team of Safety) has lovingly, cautiously and meticulously determined that there is NO DATE SET for us to meet in live/in-person worship at this time. We believe waiting is the prudent, caring, compassionate and loving thing to do.  

Our ACTS Group meets on a an nearly week to week basis, and our next meeting will be with Church Council as well.  

Should you have questions, please contact Dave Neely dave.neely@hotmail.com or Pastor Scott scott_lohman@sbcglobal.net to discuss these.

RETURNING TO CHURCH – NO LIVE/IN-PERSON WORSHIP YET. For now we’ll wait a bit since North Carolina’s Coronavirus cases have not declined. Our tentative date is pushed back to August for now. We’ll keep you posted.

RETURNING TO CHURCH – NO LIVE/IN-PERSON WORSHIP YET, BUT WE ARE GETTING CLOSER! Our tentative date we hope to return is Sunday, July 5th at 10:30 a.m. There would be no Sunday School, Bible Class, or Fellowship.

The Church Council has created a Subcommittee called ACTS (Advent Coronavirus Team of Safety), and we are considering all that we can, in order for us to safely return to worship in-person. As we discuss this, week to week, we want to inform that—like so much in society—things will look a bit differently than they have in the past. We hope everyone can be flexible and understanding, and we want to stress the importance for us all to be considerate of other’s thoughts and feelings during this process. We also plan to have videos of the services, which will be sent out via email Sunday afternoons, for those who are not yet ready to return to worship at church.

We are not yet meeting in public, but the service that will come out this weekend which will show some of our ACTS Team Members at church. They are working with me, as we determine the movement, flow and procedures we are ironing out as we look forward to a live, in-person worship gathering with more and more people. See you soon. Blessings!

More details will follow as we near July 5th.  Should you have questions, please contact Dave Neely dave.neely@hotmail.com or Pastor Scott scott_lohman@sbcglobal.net to discuss these.

Helping Those in Need During CoVid-19 – We continue to reach out during this time and we have checked with PORCH (People Offering Relief for Chapel Hill-Carrboro Homes).  The best way to work with them as we are in this pandemic, is to go directly to their website:   www.chapelhill.porchcommunities.org Then, click on the floating banner in red, which says Click here for how to help during COVID-19 crisis. They accept financial donations, they then safely provide to those who are in need of help. For non-perishable food donations, they are referring people to places we have worked with before, such as:  Inter-faith Council For Social  Services  http://www.ifcweb.org and Orange Congregations In Mission www.ocimnc.org. Thanks for continued to care for our community!

Additionally, the Town of Chapel Hill has provided a document for information on food provision in the area. If you would need a Spanish or Mandarin version of this document to forward, please reply to this email. Also, the Town has a Resources for Muslims during Ramadan document, if you need that forwarded. Here is the Town’s food provision document: file:///C:/Users/Pastor%20Scott%20Lohman/Downloads/ENGLISH%20COVID-19%20Food%20Distribution%20Flyer%20(1).pdf
