The number of new Covid-19 cases continue to decline in our four county area, but we remain at risk. The City of Clemson has extended its mask ordinance through March 15, yet also with the hope that we will continue to see cumulative decline in the next several weeks. Good news.

UniLu now has over 60 people (out of approximately 340) who have received their two shots of vaccine and some have cleared the waiting period after that. Again, wonderful news. Yes, it feels like more light is shining at the end of a very long tunnel.

With the hope of improving weather the Worship & Music Committee has currently scheduled two outdoor worship services in March.

On March 14 at 11 AM we’ll gather in our upper parking lot on Sloan Street for worship. Please wear your mask, bring your own chairs and practice physical distancing.

On March 21 we will meet at 4 PM at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Clemson in their new outdoor space, “Trinity Place”. (Same worship guidelines as for March 14.)

Following these two worship experiences we’ll review what went well and where we can make modifications. Then we can put plans together for Palm Sunday March 28 and Easter Sunday April 4. What is guaranteed, is that on all four of these Sundays (March 14 – April 4) we will have our regular 9 AM Facebook Live service.

Thanks again for your patience as we seek to show our love for our neighbors by trying to stamp out the virus.

God’s peace & hope,

Pastor Jon
