Please read Pastor Iyoda's special message below the Worship Service link, regarding reopening the church for Easter.
Fifth Sunday of Easter
Dear Members and Friends of The United Methodist Church of Merrick,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Risen Christ!
We hope that you are safe and well as we come to what we pray is the end of this pandemic.
We will be reopening the church for worship on Easter Sunday, April 4th.
We will be following the same protocols as before:
Mask wearing among all participants.
Social distancing of six feet.
Intentional steps to assure proper ventilation in public spaces.
Hand sanitizing and disinfectant protocols remain in place.
No public singing during worship until “herd immunity” has been reached.
No fellowship hours inside the building.
Please exit the building promptly when the service is over.
Thank you for your help in supporting the church in this long process. We are looking forward to seeing everyone back in church on a regular basis as we press forward through the end of this pandemic in a safe and healing way.
Blessings in Christ,
Rev. Akio Iyoda, Pastor
