“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”—Isaiah 41:10
Dear Members and Friends of Armstrong Chapel,
Due to the unprecedented nature of the Corona virus Pandemic, and the continuously changing situation, our highest priority must be the health and safety of our family and friends. Based on the recommendations of Governor DeWine and Bishop Palmer, the Leadership of Armstrong Chapel has decided to cancel all worship services for this Sunday, March 15 and March 22. We will continue to review how and when we will resume normal worship services.
However, we have decided that we will continue our ministries and small group gatherings. These decisions will be left up to individual leaders and their groups. If you have questions or individual needs, please contact your group leader directly. During this period, we will not share any food or beverages at Armstrong Chapel. Please note that the Wednesday Lenten gathering will still be held but without dinner.
We strongly urge that individuals in high risk groups take all the necessary steps to protect themselves and avoid group gatherings.
Because of the short notice, we ask that you reach out to family and friends to make sure they are aware of this announcement. Phone calls and word of mouth will guarantee that everyone is informed.
Over the next two weeks we will be providing spiritual resources and connections to one another. Should you have individual needs contact the church office and staff. Our prayers will continue. Thank you again for your understanding and patience during these trying times.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. David W. Brown
Leadership Team Chair
