Week of 3/16

March 17, 2020

All In-Person Events Canceled

That means, no Wednesday Night, no Sunday Nights are scheduled right now. In conversation with healthcare professions, I learned that the safest place for folks to gather is outside, so we may schedule a park visit for high school youth in the coming weeks. However, until further notice we will not be gathering together in-person.

But! That doesn’t mean we can’t come together in other ways! This Wednesday night we will take a stab at meeting together on Zoom, a digital meeting platform! So keep your eye out for an invitation to join that meeting this Wednesday evening at our normal time of 6:30 pm.

 

Continue to Register for Go and Serve!

Go and Serve has not been canceled! We are still planning on heading to Detroit to serve the people there for a week, June 7 – 13! And the last day for Early Registration for Adults and High School attendees is this Wednesday – so register now to save $$! Registration is available here. And register knowing that should we need to cancel the trip completely you will be refunded in the full amount.

Urgent Change of Plans

March 13, 2020

Spring Retreat is Canceled

Due to growing concern over COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel Spring Retreat out of an abundance of caution. Since both District 203/204 have closed we feel it is prudent to do so as well.

There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Naperville school districts. However, this is a rapidly developing situation and we do not currently know whether other events, including Sunday and Wednesday nights, will be held. Please keep an eye on this page for future developments.

HOWEVER!

1 Day Retreat! Tonight, at Knox, 5pm to 11pm

Because there are no confirmed cases in our area, we feel it is still safe to meet together this evening (though unsafe to spend a whole weekend together!). So come to church tonight and we are going to cram so many of our scheduled Spring Retreat events into 6 hours it will make your head spin! No registration necessary – just show up!
