Dear Church Family,

During the wilderness journey of COVID-19, your ministry team is here for you. We are working on creative ways to remain church together.  Please email one of the pastors with suggestions or ideas about how we can best support you during this time. We want to know what you need. We are with you and for you.
Updates
  • We will continue Sunday worship via live stream through March 29th. Thank you to all who joined us virtually for worship this past Sunday. It is wonderful to know we are all still connected during this uncertain time.

  • All in-person gatherings for formation groups including Sunday Sunday School, Youth Group, and Small Groups are cancelled through the end of March (03/31). We invite you to continue meeting virtually. Ministry team members will reach out to formation group leaders with instructions for facilitating a virtual meeting.

  • All in-person committee meetings are cancelled through the end of March (03/31). Ministry team members will reach out to Committee chairs with instructions for facilitating a virtual meeting.

  • The Church office is closed through the end of March (03/31). This will help ensure the safety and health of our ministry team members. All staff will continue to be available via email and those with pastoral care needs can call Pastor Heather at 919-218-2129.

  • Additional Online Opportunities for Spiritual Formation and Prayer will be provided in the days to come as we seek to stay connected to one another in ways that center us in Christ’s peace, love, justice and mercy. Follow us on Facebook and watch for our emails.

  • Pastoral Care Teams are mobilizing now to create an ‘adopt a friend’ plan to support and care for our most isolated members via phone, email, text and mail. Contact Pastor Jennifer to adopt a friend, jennifer@dukememorial.org
