Hey Highland Family –
We wanted to reach out and take a minute to update you all on how we, your Staff and Church Leadership, are moving forward with efforts to best respond to the current COVID19/Coronavirus pandemic that is beginning to effect the USA.
The following are steps we have and are taking so far:
- Enacting a comprehensive disinfecting routine with our regular church building cleaning
- Suspending all meetings, gatherings, etc except for regular Sunday School & Sunday Morning Worship Services until March 22nd
- Encouraging all members who feel more comfortable at home during this time to stay at home and join us via our Facebook live stream
- Encouraging minimal contact during greeting times… bring on those elbow bumps
- Closing the Highland Cafe until further notice
- Modifying our Food Pantry Ministry to continue to provide in the best possible way while maintaining the health and safety of those who are in need
- Postponing the March 29th Block Party
- Monitoring CDC, National & State, and Oklahoma Baptists updates on recommended response efforts
We will continue to revise our efforts and do all that we can to minister to any directly or indirectly effected by this virus. We are aware of the closings of some churches due to the pandemic, and understand that some of our Faith Family might have concerns about attending church services, and that is OK.
Whether it is Our senior adults or families with small children, or someone with health complications that may make them more susceptible, if you are not comfortable getting out, please don’t. As a reminder, if you have any needs during this time do not hesitate to reach out and let us know. We love each and every one of you and want to be there in whatever way we can!
More than anything else we are keeping our eyes focused on the Lord and constantly praying for His guidance and counsel during this time. None of this caught our God by surprise and we trust that He will be with us every step of the way showing Highland how we can continue to shine His Light to Moore and beyond!
Highland’s Staff & Leaders
