Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy.

This is an enormously challenging moment in time for humankind and for God’s Church.  The current world health situation is extremely serious.  It is crucial now for each one of us to act responsibly.  “Love one another as I have loved you,” Jesus commands.

As people who are loved and cared for by God, we recognize that God calls us to love and care for one another.  We accept and we value this high calling.  We must do our faithful best to be as considerate as possible of everyone’s health and well-being.  With genuine consideration for each other, Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ is striving to respond appropriately to the situation and to follow protocols for minimizing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Until further notice, all Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ activities, events, gatherings and “in-person” worship services are suspended.

For the time being, there will be no “in-person” gatherings of more than 10 people at Ivy Chapel UCC.  This is not an easy decision.  As Christ’s followers, we pattern our lives after the life of our Savior Jesus, and faithful discipleship involves inter-personal relationships.  This makes refraining from public worship a difficult thing for us to do.  Nevertheless, we must.  We do so out of genuine consideration for all people.

For daily spiritual nourishment; please subscribe free of charge to our United Church of Christ Stillspeaking Daily Devotional at   https://www.ucc.org/daily_devotional

We will post virtual worship experiences – including Holy Week – here on this website and on our YouTube channel.

By God’s grace and with God’s help, we are able to love one another.  God is with you.  Thank you for displaying mutual respect and loving care for all people.

If you have questions or need to reach out to us, please do not hesitate to do so via email.
