Seeking the Peace of the City
in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic
Friends of Portland Mennonite Church,
Limiting larger gatherings and practicing social distancing helps slow the spread of the virus, protecting vulnerable populations and preserving medical resources by decreasing and spreading out the demand over time. With these kind of protective measures, we can help to 'flatten the curve' so that people who need medical attention can get help. That's why we are choosing not to meet until the situation changes. Instead, we will continue to worship and continue to be the church in alternative ways.
On Sunday mornings, we invite you to join us ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE for a virtual service at 10:45 am. And we encourage you to continue to pray for one another. Call folks you know from the congregation and check-in.
And let us actively 'seek the peace of the city.' Keep an eye out for your neighbors, and especially older adults. A lot of folks are living close to the edge financially and are food insecure. Find ways to support food banks near where you live.
A few other notes:
