Moving Into Step Two of Regathering

Walnut Creek family,
Last week we shared with you our three-step path to regathering as a church. In case you missed it, you can hear more about our plan from Pastor Dan Rude in this video.
Effective today, several restrictions are being eased in the counties in which we gather. Based on that information; counsel we’ve received from governing authorities, healthcare professionals, and other church leaders; and prayerful consideration before the Lord; we believe we’re ready to enter into Step Two of the path to regathering this week, starting Monday, May 18.
Step Two is the opportunity to regather, in some capacity, within our Community Groups. We understand this will be a complicated process and require flexibility. With that in mind, we will share additional information during our Member Meetings via Zoom this weekend.
Here are a few key points to be aware of:
  • Starting May 18, there is an opportunity to begin regathering as a Community Group for Bible study and to watch church online together.
  • Not all Community Groups will regather at exactly the same pace or in the same way. Pastors have been and will continue to work extremely closely with Community Group leaders to help navigate the path to responsible regathering for their particular situation.
  • Community Group leaders will be diligently working to gather feedback and communicate plans to CG members in the days ahead. Please pray for wisdom, grace, and unity in the process.
  • Wherever necessary, Community Groups will continue to offer virtual gathering options for those unable to immediately regather.
  • It is also important to note that non-religious gatherings (such as CG hangouts) are still limited to under 10 people throughout the state of Iowa.

Again, additional information will be shared during Member Meetings this weekend, and we’d encourage you all to consider attending. We are excited to be moving together into Step Two of the regathering process, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon!

In Christ,
Pastor Tim Greeno
