Because of the recent spike in active COVID-19 cases near us and in order to continue to DO NO HARM, the reopening of live in-sanctuary services at LUMC, scheduled for this Sunday, July 5th, has been postponed until further notice.
On Tuesday, June 29th, the Douglas County health department issued a new health order which requires masks to be worn in indoor public spaces beginning, July 1st. Douglas County's Local Health Officer Dr. Thomas Marcellino stated, "Unfortunately, we have seen a steady increase of cases in recent weeks, including localized outbreaks and more than 30 new cases over the past weekend--numbers we had not experienced locally during the pandemic."
Members of the ReOpen, Worship, and Comm/Media teams are encouraged to continue to assist in the 9:30am services, as they feel led, in preparation for a reopening to be announced at a later date. Services will continue to be broadcast on the Lecompton United Methodist Church Facebook page.
Please monitor social media and the website, www.LecomptonUMC.org, for further updates.
May God guide us and give us counsel during this difficult season.
Blessings on your heads!
