To Lynnewood United Methodist Members and Visitors,

As you know, we are going through an unprecedented time in our lives, battling new issues everyday.  The National and local health programs are struggling to help us understand and overcome the effects of COVID-19.  On Monday, March 16, Alameda County Emergency Services needed to send out a mandate for all residents to “shelter in place” effective 12:01am March 17, 2020 in order to slow the pace of the spreading Corona Virus. This order will be in place for 3 weeks until April 7. Essential services, such as grocery stores, gas stations, pet stores, social services and other critical programs will continue to be open and operating. Therefore, Lynnewood UMC will honor the guidelines set out by Alameda County by canceling worship services, all set meetings, rehearsals, and other small group gatherings from March 17 through April 7. Yes, that does include Palm Sunday.  The pastors and choir director are working on services for Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday.  

Details of this order from Alameda can be found on the following website: http://www.acphd.org/2019-ncov.aspx

Please watch the Friday e-mail for further information and links to online worship services or other updates to this message. To the extent possible, our administrative staff will be working from home or coming in for short periods to perform needed tasks.

Blessings to you all, and thank you for your patience and kindness during this tumultuous time.  

Church Council

UPDATE 3/20/2020: Bible studies and worship groups will now be meeting online through Zoom, a video conferencing program. Instructions on how to use Zoom can be found here.

 As a reconciling congregation, we offer wide welcome to all people regardless of age, sex, racial or ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, physical or mental ability or economic or immigration status.  

Here at Lynnewood, we dare to question, love and serve. Your questions are welcome here. Your presence is welcome here. Your gifts and passions are welcome here.

We are so glad you found us, because together we can change the world.
