Covid-19 Update (3/17/20)

Greetings in the Grace of God,
First Wyoming United Presbyterian Church sees our mission, in part, as assisting our members and neighbors in living an abundant and healthy life. The scriptures tell us not to fear. Psalm 46:1-3, '1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.' Since God is our refuge and strength we can put our fear aside. Consider that fear produces stress on the body and makes us more susceptible to illness. Take a deep breath, and let it out.

At our Session meeting, we had a frank discussion about what our role as a church is in this time and place. With the increase of the spread of the Coronavirus across our nation and increasingly our state, we feel that following the advice of the Center for Disease Control makes sense. We are therefore asking you to prayerfully consider following that same advice.

In that light, the Session has elected to suspend our gatherings. At the present time, the following are cancelled:

  • Sunday worship, GIFT and Bible Study
  • Saturday Lenten Study
  • Labyrinth on Wednesdays and Saturdays
  • Presbyterian Women on Thursday
  • The April 3-4 Rummage Sale
  • Fifth at Five on March 29

  • The Session has decided to follow the timeline established by the local school district, we will be in suspension until the children go back to school. At this time that is estimated to be April 6, 2020. We are planning to enhance our phone tree so expect a call from one of the active Ruling Elders in the near future. We hope to establish some sort of remote worship experience in the near future and will let you know how you can take part in that from your home.

    Thank you for your understanding. Call us if you have any questions or need assistance. We can go shop for you if you like. Please keep each other in your prayers.

    You are in mine.
    Pastor Bruce McBurney
