Church Re-Opening Update #28 教會重啟更新

Last Sunday, May 2, we resumed in-person worship service. We are grateful for everyone who came to worship together and hope it was edifying for you! We also hope that those who streamed the service were able to access it and benefit from the live nature of the worship service. For this week’s update we would like to offer some reminders:

  1. Registration takes place each week. Please be reminded to register between Monday morning and Friday night for the upcoming Sunday service. Your advance registration helps ushers to prepare the seating.
  2. Please continue to arrive early for service, up to 30 minutes early. The process will get faster as we become more familiar with it but the number of attendees will also increase. Coming early will assure that you can be greeted and seated before service begins.

We understand that not everyone is ready or in a position to return to in-person worship service and we hope you can worship heartily where you are. If you were waiting to preserve seating for others, please know that each of our services had additional capacity last week and we would be blessed to see you.

Los Angeles County recently entered the Yellow Tier and health conditions continue to improve locally. We pray for God’s continued protection, and we also pray on behalf of those dramatically affected by COVID-19, such as in India, that they would receive help and find relief.

教會於上週日,五月二日恢復了實體敬拜。我們感謝所有回到教會參與敬拜的弟兄姐妹們,也衷心祝願你們覺得與肢體再度重聚很得益處。同時,我們也希望以觀看直播參與敬拜的弟兄姊妹們,你們能夠很容易就收看到,並且因為參與的是現場實體敬拜直播,靈裏一同響應。在本週的更新裏,我們將作下列提醒:

  1. 參與實體敬拜每週都需要報名。請記得若想參加下一主日的崇拜,請在週一早晨到週五晚間之間報名。如果大家都早一點報名,招待弟兄姊妹們就可以有較充裕的時間安排崇拜時的座位。
  2. 請繼續在崇拜前30分鐘之內到達教會。雖然當我們對報到程序較熟悉時,報到所需時間就會縮短,然而,隨著疫情的好轉,參與實體敬拜的人數也會相對增加。早些到達教會可以確保你和家人在崇拜開始前已完成報到並入座。

我們當中有些人對於返回教會參與實體崇拜目前尚有些保留,這是完全可以理解的。我們盼望不論身在何處,你都可以誠心敬虔地敬拜主。如果你之所以還不參與實體崇拜,是因為想將有限座位讓給別人,那麼請放心,因為上週每一堂的崇拜都還有一些空位,所以我們很盼望下週日能見到你。

洛杉磯縣疫情於上週已進步到黃色階段,本地的公共衛生情況也持續進步中。我們求神不住地保守,我們也為那些如印度等地區再度經歷新冠肺炎的肆虐,為了他們能即時得到所需的幫助,疫情得到紓緩而向神呼求。
