The Presbytery cannot mandate that churches stop gathering in person for worship. That authority is reserved for the session. We can, however, recommend that
no congregation hold in-person worship at least through March 29, 2020
. And we do so in the strongest possible terms. Further, we must face the possibility that in-person worship may not be able to proceed for Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter Sunday, as we continue to monitor guidelines from governmental leaders. Let’s think together about how we mark these essential days in our lives and on our calendars.
