Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can be transmitted from person to person. It is caused by a virus that can also live on surfaces near where an infected person has coughed, sneezed or exhaled. It has spread throughout the world in the first quarter of 2020, causing illness, and, in some cases, death. Its effects in various countries and localities have ranged from cancelations of public gatherings, to limits or bans on travel, to drops in financial markets.
Like other organizations, churches must take appropriate health precautions. We also have a special responsibility to care for members and neighbors.
It is in these precautions and responsibilities that New Creation UCC offers Virtual worship during these uncertain times.
