On Tuesday, August 24, the Session met on short notice via Zoom to hear and act on the following recommendation of the Public Worship Task Force:
The Public Worship Task Force of NPC recommends that beginning this Sunday (August 29th) and continuing at least through the month of September, we suspend public worship at Nacoochee Presbyterian Church. This includes the suspension of gathering for Sunday School. In place of public worship we will return to the practice used during the previous suspension — a service will be recorded and sent to the entire congregation.
Other groups using our building will be informed of our decision but their gatherings are at their discretion.
Given the surge in Covid-19 cases in our area and in the interest of the health and safety of our congregation, the Session unanimously accepted this recommendation, effectively immediately. The situation and the prospects will be looked at again when the Session holds its next stated meeting on September 19.
