Might want to check that church in La Grande, Oregon for a cautionary tale.  

236 positive out of 365 tests.



Wow! Scary.....


We are a small state and is one of the two outbreaks that put us on pause.  All they have out there is a 25 bed hospital.  

Take care.

 You can be tested found negatiive and then exposed and go to church exposing others. They may have a limited congregation!

  Our church had two Decans who cleaned the church with wipes, etc before each service. One came down with the virus. 
  I pray at home!

I'm planning to still wait a couple months before I go back to my church. It's just too much to deal with right now. I will continue to watch the service on line and mail in my offering. So I'm good for a while longer.

I honestly don't think God would mind if you prayed at home.

My church decided not to open up to worship services in the church yet. It is simply too risky and we have a large at risk group of members.


We had good streaming services years before COVID-19 and have expending on that. For those who don’t have computers or internet, we offer grants and computers (and teach to use) so they can stay connected.
