Coronavirus Response

First United Church of Arvada: Coronavirus Response as of 3/25/2020
TO: First United Church of Arvada Community
SUBJECT: Suspension of Activities at the church thru April
DATE: March 25, 2020

Due to the Jefferson County of the Stay-At-Home order, all church activities, worship services and rental group meetings are suspended until the end of April. Please note the church building will be CLOSED to all, but approved staff and essential personnel. However, we continue in our mission to serve others by calling and checking in with family, friends, contributing to our missions, and praying during reflective times. Sunday services will continue on Zoom. We encourage you to share your new stories. It can’t be stated enough; it is important to take care of yourself physically and emotionally. Each of us can help by sharing what you are doing and thinking, through email and online fellowship.

Yes, this is possibly the worst kind of separation. However, we have a history. We have an immediate history and we have wisdom, a longer history, and obligation to pass what we know on to the next generations. There will be a time when we look upon the coronavirus as a distant memory, and even now charting new beginnings.

You will see some activity in the garden as we see signs of spring all around. Gardeners will be practicing “social distancing’, unless other information becomes available that would suspend the activity. And, the Blessing Box needs our faithful attention. Every seemingly small contribution is collectively a blessing for others.

Information on the virus changes daily. The Weekly Blast will continue to be your source of information about the church. City of Arvada local information is available by signing up for the City’s newsletter.

A good source for information at State and local websites are:
State of Colorado COVID-19 page
City of Arvada’s COVID-19 page
Jefferson County Public Health

Best regards,
Chuck Clark, Moderator
