Hello Missio Dei Wrigleyville,
The Missio Dei Wrigleyville elder team has determined to suspend our worship gathering this Sunday, March 15, 2020, in an effort to join with city and state officials to slow the spread of COVID-19. Under new city and state guidelines, non-essential gatherings must be limited to no more than 250 people. While gatherings our size are not explicitly restricted, strong recommendations of social distancing remain.
Though the virus is not dangerous for many, it is dangerous for some and we believe our precautions are wise and necessary. We desire to care for the vulnerable - the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions.
In other words, out of a heart of love for our neighbors and our city, we are going to fast from our routine Sunday gathering for the well being of others.
For now, we will reevaluate on a weekly basis and will keep you updated via email, social media, and our app notifications regarding future gatherings.
Although we will not be meeting for church on Sunday, we cannot cease being the church with one another and for our city.
With all of this in mind, here are a few of the ways we will press on together in this unique moment. In the event that someone doesn’t get the message about our canceled gathering, there will be someone present Sunday morning to greet, care for and pray with those people.
