While we are still currently worshipping online and at home, we continue to monitor the new positive cases in Polk County as well as several other markers of when we feel it is safe and responsible to begin worshipping in person again. Based on the plateau of new cases in the past several days, the decisions of some of our neighboring churches, the announcement by the city of Urbandale to extend the opening date of administrative offices until no earlier than August 31. We know that we will be continuing to worship online and at home at least until after Labor Day. We will, of course, provide updates during worship announcements, in our weekly newsletter and on our website when we decide to resume in-person worship. Be safe, Stay healthy, Wear a mask and be in contact with the church office if you need assistance, if you have pastoral care needs or prayer concerns, or if you just need to be in conversation with someone in your Aldersgate Community.
I hope to see you soon,
