FOR HAMPSTEAD UNITED METHODIST CHURCH:

Due to COVID 19 health requirements  all of our formal (larger group) worship services are suspended.  We will be conducting a small group informal prayer and worship service at 11 am on all Sundays until our regular services return.  This service will be recorded and placed on our website and Face Book page for those who can not or should not attend.


Nursery services are cancelled.

Sunday School classes may meet at their discretion.

 

Smaller groups may continue to meet, at their own discretion.  Please keep in mind that the federal guidelines set a recommended limit of no more than 10 persons.  North Carolina is now observing the 10 person limit guideline.  These are guidelines not hard rules.  Please use common sense to keep everyone attending and our community safe.


Bible studies and confirmation classes will continue at the scheduled times. 

Individual groups are encouraged to advise the office and pastor so announcements can be made.

 

I love and treasure every single one of you! And it is my life’s joy to be with you every single Sunday!  But (and read this next part carefully, and hear my heart!) – if you:

1) are in a high risk group -- 

2)  are over 65, 

3)  have limitations/treatments that compromise your health (diabetes, high BP, etc.), 

4)  have traveled outside the US or to any of the states of Washington, California, Massachusetts,  

     New York or New Jersey in the last month (locales with highest numbers of known cases);

5)  have had large contacts with people in Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, or Camp Lejeune;    or,

6)  have persons living with you that you might expose (by taking sickness home with you!), 

then you should strongly consider staying home for the next two Sundays. 

 

For the immediate future:

Flower deliveries are suspended for the time being;

Communion in all services is cancelled;

Passing the Peace methods are changed (elbow bumps  or “agape waves”);

Offering plates will not be passed-- plates will be present in which you may place your offering;

And we are working to provide at least an audiotaped service on the website.

We will happily receive your tithe and offerings by mail!

 

Prayers for the protection of our loving God and for the sensibilities of His people.
