COVID-19 preventative measures continue to impact our congregation and local community. On April 1, 2020, Governor DeSantis advised all residents of Florida to limit time outside of their homes to essential services and gatherings only. We appreciate that the Governor wisely chose not to close down places of worship but left the decision whether to gather in person up to church leadership. As both an act of wisdom and witness we will continue to not gather as a congregation at Midway for the foreseeable future. This was a very difficult decision and one only arrived at after much prayer. The pastor, ministers, and elders will reevaluate this decision every two weeks. Be encouraged, however! Although we're not meeting in person that does not mean we won't be seeing one another!
We are leveraging technology so the majority of our ministries can resume. The Senior Adult Bible Study met online April 1 and will meet each Wednesday morning at 10am (contact the church office for details). Bro. Braylen met in an online chat with the youth group Wed. evening as well. Sunday School classes for adults and youth will begin meeting online this weekend via the Zoom platform. Please contact Bro. Pete if you do not hear from your regular SS teacher or if you would like to join a class. Additionally, we continue to add discipleship resources for adults and children to the website so check back often.
The ministers are here for you. The church office remains open and we would love to hear from you. Please contact us with any prayer requests, questions, concerns, or needs.
These are challenging times but we, as the church, have an opportunity to witness of the faithfulness and grace of Jesus to the world. Let's take care of ourselves and one another. Remember, wash your hands and then wash your neighbors feet.
