Letter from Joint Council regarding suspending worship/church events ~

On behalf of the Joint Council, we write to notify you of the continued suspension of services.  Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the safety of our members, guidelines from the State & CDC and the synod recommendation, we are cancelling our regular worship services, in-person meetings and other church activities.  However, online worship services will be offered at 10am on Sunday mornings and also during Holy Week at 7pm.   Watch Prayer Chain, Daily Devotions and phone tree for logistical information. 

If you have an emergency or need something that you can’t get out to get (groceries, prescriptions, etc), please let Pastor Sonya know.  We have folks willing in both congregations to help out.

Because our expenses continue whether we worship together or not, we ask that you prayerfully continue to tithe weekly or give on-line via our website (SJ only for online giving.)  You can mail offerings to the church as mail will be checked weekly:

Gravel Springs, PO Box 116, Star Tannery, VA 22654

St John’s, 3623 Back Mountain Rd, Winchester, VA 22602

Prayer Chain and Daily Devotions will continue to be distributed.  Pastoral visits will be for emergencies only.

Remember to wash your hands frequently and refrain from touching your face.  Please take precautions and stay well.

Thank you,

Steve Allamong, Joint Council President

Jack Colvin, Joint Council Vice President
