Statement From Our Shepherds

Thursday, November 5:

To our church family,

After prayerful discussion this evening, in light of recent COVID cases among our members, we have reached the conclusion that it would be best to cancel all IN-PERSON gatherings at the church building for the next two weeks. While we will have no IN-PERSON assemblies (including Wednesday Bible class) for the weeks of November 8 and 15, we WILL be offering online worship and study resources similar to what was offered in the Spring. Details will be sent out on Saturday outlining how to access all of these resources. We will have more to share next week in view of a tentative restart to in-person gatherings on Sunday, November 22. In the meantime, please stay safe and keep our church family in your prayers.

Thank you,
The Shepherds of the Charlestown Road Church of Christ


Tuesday, November 3:

To our church family,

As a congregation, we have worked together during these past months to carefully and safely worship during this pandemic. We thank you for working with us to follow recommendations to care for one another.

Over the past days, we have received information that several of our members have recently tested positive with COVID-19. These cases are all unrelated and there is no reason for us to believe that the positive cases are directly related to our members being at in-person worship services. Nonetheless, we want you to be aware of this development and wish to remind you of our expectations we have during all in-person worship services to ensure we can safely continue to worship together:

  • If you have any health symptoms whatsoever, please do not come to worship in person. Please join us online.
  • Masks should be fully worn at all times while in the building.
  • Social distancing while in the building and worshipping is required.
  • Frequent washing of hands when entering and exiting the building is highly encouraged.
  • Reduce gathering in the foyer and the overhang following services.

Those of our church family who have tested positive are doing well with no serious complications at this time, and our prayers are with them.

Please know that our prayers are with each of you and for our collective church family as well. It is our prayer that we may remain focused on praising our God together.

Thank you,
The Shepherds of Charlestown Road Church of Christ
