From The Pastor..
John Wesley gave the Methodist societies three general rules to follow. These general rules are one of the foundational cornerstones of the Methodist movement, and they are still our guiding principles to this day.  The first general rule is “do no harm.” It was out of a desire to follow this rule that we made the decision to suspend in-person worship services starting on November 29th.  At that time it was announced that we were only suspending in-person worship services for the remainder of the year. Unfortunately, we will have to expand the time that in-person worship is suspended into 2021. The reality is that it makes little sense to return to in person worship when the conditions related to infection and viral spread are worse than we initially suspended.
