Beverly Unitarian Church Suspending In-Person Gathering and Moving Online

Released on Sat 3/14/2020 at 3:47 PM
Dear Members and Friends of Beverly Unitarian Church,
In light of all we are reading about COVID-19, we are deciding to follow guidance from the city, advice from the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), knowledge of cases in our local Beverly community, the model of other neighborhood institutions, and what’s happening worldwide, the conclusion was clear and quick.

We are suspending all church activity in person and moving online for worship and meetings.

Beginning tomorrow, Sunday, March 15th, all in-person meetings and worship will be suspended through the end of the month. This includes everything church-related in the building or gathering offsite: worship services; small groups; committee meetings; education and discussion groups; religious education—everything.

On April 1st we will reassess and update.

Even though we aren’t gathering in person, church goes on:

Church Service Online. This Sunday and in the weeks ahead,we’ll have church online, and host a viewing party of worship on the church Facebook page at our usual 10:30 am time. We’ll have signs up and I’ll be on site Sunday morning to let folks know who didn’t get the message and still arrive in person.
Sunday's Sermon: "A Place for Imperfection" Guest Minister: Rev. Ruth Vann Lillian
Modern popular culture worships the superlative. Everything must be the "estest" (biggest, greatest, strongest) and anything less, like silver & bronze medal recipients, are not worth notice. We leave no room to be regular, average, just OK when, in fact, none of us is perfect. Can our church provide a place for imperfection?

Over the coming week small groups and committees will explore options for video or telephone meetings. In a moment where we’ll do a lot less meeting in person,we want to make it as easy as possible to connect with each other.

Pastoral Care. Please reach out to me (,or others in the congregation if you’re in need of connection, if you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed, or if you’re struggling with what this means for your own health or those you love.

We worry about each other. We love each other. Now is the time to show our love for each other with care and compassion. This isn’t a time to withdraw from community but to reach out to each other. Make a telephone call or send a text to a friend in the church. Reach out. Log in and be present online Sunday for each other. We are resilient, and we are stronger together.

In hope and solidarity,
Rev. David
