Dear Metro Life Church Family,
We’ve said it before, but it sure is worth repeating. We have missed you! As you know, we have utilized the data from PrepareSeminole.org as our source, along with the counsel of those in the medical field, to determine the criteria for our return to Sunday services. Over the last two weeks Seminole County and the surrounding area have shown a consistent trend in a downward trajectory in infection rates, hospitalizations and daily cases. So, we are happy to share with you that we return to in-person services this Sunday, August 2, 2020.
Friends, we all know the vast array of opinions, different data points, and far-ranging perspectives on what the right decision is for something which we have not had to walk through before. Beyond the data, one primary thing has driven our decision making; love. When we silence all the noise, politics, and anything else, we have one clear calling to one another, which is to owe no one anything except to love one another. Yes, opinions on how we best love one another in these days is varied too, but please know this has been our overarching decision maker. As we gather, lets focus on love. Let’s rejoice in fellowshipping together. Let’s come expectant. If there is something good that can come of all of this, maybe one of the “goods” is we truly have a passion, devotion and love for the fellowship of our local church in new ways.
Love for others will continue to be our overarching priority as we return. To that end, and in keeping with our local government guidelines, we will continue to practice physical distancing in the building. Masks are required as you enter, in the lobby, and while moving within the building. Additionally, we ask that all conversations take place outside of the building. If you or a loved one have a significant medical condition, we encourage you to continue to join us remotely through our video and web opportunities.
We are so eager to see you again. Our intention is to remain open, regardless of the future ups and downs of the virus, so long as we are in keeping with county guidelines related to occupancy, physical distance and best sanitation practices.
