December 4, 2020 Dear Church family, Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson and the Cabinet recently sent a video letter in which she and the cabinet offer guidance to clergy and church leaders in the North Georgia Conference regarding in- person worship during this Advent season. (see the full letter at www.ngumc.org). As you may be aware, Hall County has risen back up to a "red' risk level on the Covid virus risk assessment CDC site. The church leadership and myself met today to discuss our plans. We have decided the safest and most prudent thing is to suspend in-person worship until the numbers come back down and we further evaluate when it is safe to return to worshiping in the Sanctuary. Bishop Sue began her video letter with scripture that rings true for all of our decisions.... This is from the third letter of John, verse two: "Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you, and that you may be in good health just as it is well with your soul." Our goal is that bodies and souls will be healthful this Christmas season. We will be streaming our worship services at 11am on our website - www.FBUMC.net and on Facebook. The worship team has planned some great music and an uplifting worship experience which we hope will brighten your Christmas spirit. God knows we need Him now and we need the Advent spirit to help us through this difficult time. We have special plans and very special music for Christmas Eve which will include the lighting of candles together, albeit, from our individual homes. So please be on the look-out for more information as we look forward to the birth of our Savior Christ Jesus. Blessings, Pastor Tyler Flowers
