Woodland Park Covid-19 Notification

Dear Church Family,

Many of you may now be aware that some of our pastors, support staff, and volunteers have been exposed to or have tested positive for Covid-19. Some of this exposure happened during our Churchwide Retreat at Fall Creek Falls this past weekend where approximately 150 members of our church were gathered together. After consulting the Hamilton County Health Department we discussed options for how to lead forward with known exposure to a large number of our Body.

Our goal as leaders is to make a decision that we believe will best limit further exposure to a contagious virus without limiting or prohibiting ministry opportunities for extended periods of time. We still believe God is at work in and through Woodland Park. As we’ve seen in 1 Peter, rejoicing and hope-filled living happens as we look to God during the various trials of our daily life. His manifold grace is sufficient for today!

In light of these circumstances, we are suspending all onsite ministry beginning Wednesday, October 28 through Sunday, November 1. This includes groups that meet onsite, the Fall Festival on Friday, and the Weekend Services on Saturday and Sunday. We believe this temporary pause will create an effective, minimal quarantine among our Body that could help eliminate further spreading of the virus and move us toward serving and gathering together again without further delay. Weekend Services will be online only during our normal times: Saturday 6:00pm, Sunday 9:15am and 10:45am. We encourage you to worship “together” with us as we fix our hope completely on the grace to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:13)

We will reevaluate the situation by Monday, November 2 in order to communicate an update with you. We humbly ask that you would continue to pray for God to grant us wisdom as we lead and for our Body as we seek to connect to God and one another.

In Christ,
Woodland Park Leadership
