A Mid-Week Classic

A Pastoral Message 6/3/20

“Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3b-4

Dear beloved Wyoming Church community,

Just this past Sunday, we celebrated Pentecost, the birthday of the Christian church.  As we reflected on how God’s Spirit calls us as community, surely you also must have wondered how we will structure our life together—and if we will physically be together–going into the summer.  And so I share with you that following the recommendation of the Presbytery of Newark, our Session leadership has decided to continue to worship virtually until at least September 12, 2020.

These are indeed challenging times. The session voted in favor of this recommendation because we consider the needs and safety of all five generations of our community as paramount.  We also don’t take this decision lightly– we acknowledge the collective grief over this pandemic on multiple layers, and we feel the pain and anger of our country due to the racial injustices that continue come to light.  During these difficult times, we realize just how much we need each other.

We also believe that we have never closed as a church; our ministry continues, though our building is closed.  The session and the Wyoming task force will continue to monitor the situation over the summer and update you of any changes. In the meantime, I’d like to encourage all of you to continue to stay connected through our summer offerings.

  • Worship: Our worship service is available on Facebook and YouTube on Sundays at 10 am.  During the Summer, we will have a sermon series based on the book Liturgy of the Ordinary.
  • Spiritual Care: The Deacons and I continue to respond to spiritual needs of the congregation.  Please contact me at the office if you have any emergent needs.
  • Education: Both Children’s and Adult Education forums will continue through the month of June via Zoom.
  • Mission: Our Mission Team continues to provide support to our community partners.
  • Administration: The Session, Staff, and other teams continue to meet regularly virtually.
  • Social Media: our Facebook page, Instagram account, and our website have regular updates from the life of our community.  If you haven’t already, please like and follow us.

As we continue to navigate these difficult circumstances, I send Christ’s peace to all of you, praying that the Holy Spirit continue to work in and through all of us.

In Christ,

Rev. Caroline Unzaga
