A message from Pastor Craig …
Bishop Paul Leeland, who leads the Western North Carolina Conference, has asked all United Methodist churches in western North Carolina to suspend public worship until further notice to help slow the rate of coronavirus infection.
Memorial UMC will follow the Bishop’s leadership in this matter and suspend worship until further notice. This decision affects all on-site activities, including worship and Sunday school. Visit us on Memorial UMC’s Facebook page.
Members and friends, you already work hard to “encourage one another and build one another up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11). During this unusual time in the life of the Church, please continue this ministry by making phone calls, sending cards and text messages, and offering prayer for one another.
I know it hurts our hearts to suspend worship. But I am confident that God is gracious, merciful, and loving. I’m also confident that God is present with us, through good times and bad. We will get through this, with God’s grace, and we will emerge strong and healthy on the other side and gather again to glorify God … together.
May peace be with you all
