Dear Albany Church Family,
This is the latest communication from the Oregon conference regarding the corona virus situation.
"The Governor announced a prohibition on all gatherings of 25 or more people until April 15. As a result, the Oregon Conference AdCo has made the decision to close all in-person worship services at Oregon Conference Churches for the duration of the governor’s order (April 15). This also includes any gatherings of the church which will result in more than 10 people attending. We encourage churches to experience worship together in innovative ways through the use of technology. While groups are prohibited from meeting for the sake of public safety, the spiritual community we experience together is irreplaceable. Please continue to find ways to creatively cultivate spiritual community.”
With this in mind, we are planning to live stream the sermon each Sabbath at 11 a.m. here in Albany. This will begin this Sabbath, March 21. For your safety as well as others, we are asking our members to view online at our church website (albanyadventist.org). Click on the "watch live" button to view the service. We are asking everyone to stay home during these weeks. All scheduled church activities are cancelled through April 15.
Until we are able to resume our regular schedule, tithe and offerings may be mailed to the church: 3085 SE Grand Prairie Rd. Albany, OR 97322. Online giving is also available on the Albany church website.
Judy & I look forward to the time when we can meet together again as a church family and to get better acquainted with each one of you.
Stay safe and keep well,
Pastor Barry Taylor
