The Loudonville United Methodist Church
Worship Service November 29, 2020
Reopening Task Force Update
The Reopening Task Force met after the worship service on Sunday, November 22nd, to discuss whether to continue in-person worship services, Sunday school classes, and building use after receiving the latest letter from Bishop Malone. Neither the Ashland Health Department nor the Bishop are requiring the church to suspend in-person services, classes, or events at this time. However, that may change at any time, and the Task Force will closely monitor the news and Health Department requirements.
The Task Force has contingency plans in place if we are advised or required to suspend in-person use of the church. For those in our church family who choose to shelter in-place while the infection rate remains elevated, our worship services will continue to be live-streamed on Facebook with a link to the video that you can watch at your convenience on our website. Committee members can still participate in scheduled meetings by calling in to attend. Please contact the Office for help with setting up your mobile device or computer to participate in worship services or meetings.
For up-to-the-minute information about the church’s in-person worship/class/event status, please follow our Facebook page, check your email, or call the Office.
Guidelines for Loudonville United Methodist Church Worship Services
Please, do not attend services if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, and are feeling ill. If you are at risk because of an underlying medical condition or uncomfortable gathering in person, we encourage you to stay home and watch the livestream service on Facebook.

Our next Community Meal will be Monday, December 21st from 5-6:30pm.
Meals will be packaged at the time of pick-up. Simply drive up to the church, tell the runner how many people you're feeding, and a family-sized meal will be brought to your waiting vehicle! Meals are free, but donations are gladly accepted.
We observe the guidelines from the US Dept. of Agriculture, which include taking meals to those who come for them in their cars. Persons will be asked not to leave their cars so that they will not have the opportunity to violate the social distancing we are trying to maintain. We will keep the number of volunteers to a minimum, in order to further maintain as much social distancing as possible.
