I hope that celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ brought joy to you and your congregation! Now begins the season where we see the risen Christ at work, not just in the Bible, but also in our lives.
It is a joy to share that your Regional staff are fully vaccinated. This means that we are able to lift our travel guidelines a bit. Still cautious, and still practicing all the safety protocols, Michael, Pam, and Paxton Jones (Acting Regional Minister during May, June, & July) will begin traveling for congregational worship beginning April 11, 2021.
We will continue to join you in worship via Zoom or Facebook, but now we will be able to join you for special events such as installations or retirements or to fill the pulpit as needed. To be present with you in worship, we expect your congregation to also be practicing all the safety protocols recommended by the CDC, wearing masks, washing your hands, watching your distance.
- April 11, 2021 – Michael preaching in person at Enid Central CC
- April 18, 2021 – Pam preaching via Zoom at Tulsa Bethany CC
- April 18, 2021 – Michael presiding at the retirement of Rev. Charles Ragland, Claremore FCC
Camp and Conference will be in-person this summer. And, beginning this fall, we will also be considering in-person meetings at the Disciples Center.
Over the next few months will be scheduling and attending many pastor installations, retirements and ordination services that have been postponed.
Looking forward to seeing the beauty of Spring!
Peace & God’s Grace,
Regional Minister Pamela Holt
