Our bishop, Bishop Mike McKee, has approved the Metro District churches to reopening-person worship with strict protocols of mask-wearing, social distancing, and limited singing.
For our church, the United Methodist Church of Preston Hollow, it is the overwhelming opinion of our Leadership Council that we remain closed for in-person worship. We have a large population of older congregants and vulnerable peoples. As we come into Fall, we expect a resurgence of a large number of Covid-19 infections, and we know large gatherings of people make it very easy to spread the virus.
We will remain closed through October. We will revisit the possibility of in-person worship toward the end of October, looking at November/December. We believe this is in the best interest of all in our congregation, to do no harm and to keep everyone safe.
Blessings and Peace to all of you, and look forward to seeing you online with us each Sunday.
