Good morning church family!
As pastors Trent, Ken, and I have been deliberating this week over holding service Sunday or not, and with only one confirmed case in Hilo, our plan was to hold service and livestream it as well as record it for our website. However, Jody Webb has informed me that there are two cases now in Kona which has altered our original plans since this is an extremely communicable virus.
As such, we will cancel all church services for this Sunday, March 22 as well as all future services until we announce differently. We will post our service on our website for each Sunday. Due to legal licensing requirements and the fact we do not have the added expensive license to post copyrighted music, the worship portion of the service will not be posted. We will be looking into public domain hymns, etc. for the future, but for now we will only post the message.
Furthermore, all Bible studies will be shut down for the time being. We may look at getting the Revelation study recorded and posted in the future.
We are not looking to have small group meetings in homes as it only takes one infected person to quickly spread this virus to others.
To recap, there will be no church services or Bible studies starting this Sunday.
Next, we are working on creating a means of communication for our church members to post their needs. The pastors and deacons will be looking at means of serving our members during this time, but communication is paramount for us to do so. For now, please just e-mail/call your deacon first, and the pastors next.
Again, you may send your offering via:
- Mail – P.O. Box 384330 Waikoloa, HI 96738
- Electronically through our https://wbchawaii.churchofficechms.com site:
- If you are not signed up for ChurchOfficeOnline yet, please follow the instructions in the bulletin.
Thank you, and have a great rest of your weekend!
Pastors Jim, Ken, and Trent
