Dear Members and Friends of the Desert Southwest Conference,
This email has two important points of information:
1- I have made the decision to postpone my update this week. There are many considerations and resources that are being developed and we want to share them with you when they are ready.
For now, there is no change in our Desert Southwest Conference response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue the suspension of in-person worship and gatherings with the exceptions detailed in my update issued two weeks ago on July 29.
2- In the meantime, our Desert Southwest Conference chancellor, Marilee Miller Clarke, is offering a webinar on Thursday, August 20th at 10 AM PST to inform churches about when, why, and how to use waivers and signs for ministries happening on the church campus during this time of social distancing.
Please share this registration information with your church’s re-opening team, the board of trustees, and church staff and leadership that needs to be informed about the use of waivers and signs for ministries happening on the church campus.
Click here to register in advance for this webinar and enter your questions for Marilee to address during the webinar.
My next update will be published on Wednesday, August 19, 2020. Please keep praying and keep acting for justice in the name and spirit of Jesus who taught us to love one another as he loved us. Demonstrate that Christ-like love by caring for yourself and keeping yourself well and safe; and caring for others so they are also well and safe.
