Donuts and coffee
Refreshments will return to the patio after all of our weekly worship services. We are excited to have the opportunity for our community to get back to connecting with one another and no better place to do it than our beautiful patio after services.
Save the Date – Lenten Services and Easter
Can you believe we are already looking forward to Easter? We are planning to host two services on Easter morning – Sunday April 17. One at 9:00 AM and one at 11:00 AM with an Easter egg hunt occurring between the two services. In addition, we will host an Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday March 2 and a Maundy Thursday service Thursday April 14 (Both of these services will be at 7:00 pm). Save the date on your calendar.
Lenten Small Groups
In addition, we will be encouraging everyone in the congregation to participate in a small group during the season of lent. Lenten reflections will originate from the Sunday sermon and questions will be provided to all small group leaders. If you are a small group leader, look for a email from the office soon. If you are not in a small group at this moment, please see the website to see how to sign up for a small group.
Health and Safety Standards – COVID protocols
We are hopeful that the health department at Ventura County will soon change its guidelines in relation to the wearing of masks. However, for the time being, we are going to continue to ask people who attend service in person to wear masks.
In an attempt to bring as many people back to campus on Sunday mornings, we are going to set up a television and speakers outdoors for those who would prefer to not wear a mask. This provides an opportunity for people who have difficulty wearing a mask to participate in person with other people from the congregation. In addition, after the service, those who are worshipping inside and those who are worshipping outside can have the opportunity to be together as the Body of Christ. The session is hopeful that we can move beyond mask wearing very soon. Our conversations continue to focus on when is the best time to make changes to our own policies. Thanks for your patience in this process and thanks for your continued prayers as we discern the best and safest way for Moorpark Presbyterian Church to move forward.
