To our Desert Light family… We will be reopening our doors on Sunday, May 17th for church services on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. We are excited to be coming together once again for worship and the Word, but realize that there are still serious concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With those concerns in mind, we will be reopening under the guidelines listed on the slide image below.
These guidelines are meant to protect our church family, many of whom are considered vulnerable to the coronavirus that is currently spreading through our community and the world. Not everyone in our congregation should be joining us yet in church services. We understand that some of you are not concerned at all about COVID-19 and are resistant to any required preventative measures. While we support your right to that perspective, we must act appropriately to serve the entire congregation, many of whom feel differently.
This is a wonderful opportunity for each of us as followers of Jesus to practice the Christian traits of humility and submission… not to our government (which never mandated that churches close in Arizona), or to the church leadership (although we are enacting these guidelines)… but to each other as brothers and sisters in the Lord. Paul exhorts us in…
Because seating is limited right now, if you are planning to attend our Sunday services in the church building, please contact the church at (928) 758-2636 to reserve seating. The office hours are currently limited, so if your call goes to voicemail, just leave a message requesting seating with your name and the number of people in your group.
We will be loosening these guidelines in stages as soon as possible. We look forward to a return to complete normalcy in the near future and the resumption of all ministry activities. In the meantime, continue to pray for and encourage each other and join us online if you are unable to join us in person.
God bless you all and we look forward to coming together again!
