COVID-19 Update

Dear Sojourners Family –
We are, indeed, navigating uncharted waters as we continue to face the challenges of confronting the coronavirus worldwide.  Here at home, the Governor of Virginia has issued a Temporary Stay At Home Order Due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) directing all individuals in Virginia to abide by “stay at home” mandates until June 10.  The Sojourners Church Council met in Emergency Session on March 31 to address recommendations regarding the coronavirus and the use of the church building and grounds in the coming months.  After a serious discussion and taking into consideration the most current advice of local, state and federal agencies, the Council arrived at the following decision:
Beginning Wednesday, April 1 to Wednesday, June 10. we will continue to suspend all use of the church building and grounds, with the exception of activities related to facility maintenance and administration.  The Council will meet prior to June 10 to assess conditions and to make recommendations for church use beyond June 10.
