Based on the recommendations of our President, Governor, and local health department, we will not be holding events with groups larger than 10 people. See coronavirus.gov.
We do not see this decision as compromising our faith out of fear, whether toward a virus or our government. Rather, we believe this is an expression of appropriate submission to our governing authorities, cooperation with our community, and concern for the most vulnerable among us (1 Peter 2:13-17, Isaiah 1:16-17). In coming days, we may be called upon to serve our neighbors in less socially distanced ways, but for now, we will not gather in large groups.
