Your Remote Worship Practices Provide Opportunities
Looking ahead to vacation season and considering those who need a break now, we are assembling information from Blackhawk churches regarding their remote worship practices. Thank you for the early responses. The document will be available next week.
We suggest that a church may want to partner with another congregation (with a similar "style" of remote worship) to swap worship for a week or two, allowing the pastor to take a break and both congregations be blessed with each other's participation. We have at least two churches interested in pursuing this right away: one doing prerecorded services and one live-streamed. Please
contact the office for more information.
When It’s Time to Gather Again
While we continue remote worship through May, the growing pressure to loosen restrictions in Illinois reminds us that we need to begin taking the steps necessary to provide safe space for gathering together again. Please consider starting slowly and opening in phases. Below you’ll find other suggestions and resources to help inform your plans and decisions. (
