I write to inform you that with rising cases of Covid-19 in Georgetown, and in Sun City, the session is suspending in-house worship at SGPC on Sunday mornings until further notice. This past Sunday, November 22, will be the last in-house worship service until the session can determine that rates of infection and hospitalizations are low and steady to declining once again in Georgetown.
I know this is a disappointment to many of you. It is for me. I have enjoyed having a live congregation to lead in worship these past many weeks. However, as of this writing the Williamson County and Cities Health District has moved the county into a “Red Phase” of concern for spread of the coronavirus. This is the highest warning and indicates uncontrolled community spread of the virus. Though the church is not civilly obligated to follow the WCC Health Districts guidelines, as citizens of Williamson County and Georgetown I believe the church is morally obligated to abide by the health authority’s recommendation. This moral obligation is in recognition of the church’s responsibility for the greater good of our community especially as our hospitals begin to fill and our medical personnel become overextended due to a surge in Covid-19 infections.
The session will revisit the decision to open SGPC for in-house worship as soon as infection rates and hospitalizations due to Covid-19 are under control in Georgetown and Williamson County. Livestreaming of worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. will continue from our Sanctuary without a congregation present. Keep in mind that the livestream automatically videotapes and can be watched at your convenience.
The health of our members, visitors, church staff, and the citizens of Georgetown are of primary concern for the session decision to suspend in-house worship at this time. I appreciate the opportunity we have had to worship in-house these past several weeks. I respect the session’s decision now to suspend worship, knowing that with patience and diligence in facing down this virus, we will enjoy the opportunity to gather in-house for worship again.
Grace and Peace, Pastor Bill
