TCC Family -
It's really disappointing for me to have to inform you that we will not be able to have Easter services together at the church building this year. As you probably know by now, Governor Pritzker has extended the Stay at Home order until the end of April, which means that our services at the building will be canceled for all of April. While this may sadden us, the health and safety of our members, attenders, and guests is of utmost importance during this time, and we want to discourage the spread of the virus. These cancellations, of course, include Easter. It is a special day for us as a community of faith, just as it is for many families, and I long to worship in the same room with all of you and with our guests on Easter. This year, that's not going to happen. That's the bad news.
The good news is that whether or not we all gather in a building at 1124 North Webster Street or not, Jesus was still raised from the dead over two thousand years ago, and we can celebrate that event wherever we are. And we will! We are planning a special service on Easter Sunday, April 12, to worship God for his great gift of eternal life which is offered to us through Jesus' resurrection. So, let me encourage you to join us on Easter Sunday at 10:25am at tayl.info/facebook to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ together.
This time is difficult on many levels, but we will worship together as a body again. The experience of this pandemic is discouraging to many people, and it is a time when many are experiencing some isolation and loneliness. But we are a people of hope! God is still at work, and he still has work to do in us. I'm looking forward to doing that work together with you. Please know that you are welcome to call the church office or email a staff member if you need us. We will get back to you.
I'm praying for you!
Grace & Peace,
