Community Thanksgiving Meal
Our Thanksgiving Community Meal will be Monday, November 16th from 5-6:30pm. Each meal will include your favorites for Thanksgiving. Mark your calendar now to pick up dinner for your family that evening.
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.
We Are Worshiping Back in Our Sanctuary!
[Originally published August 26, 2020]
The Reopening Task Force has been working toward returning to worship inside the sanctuary. Our first service inside will be September 6. We understand that some individuals still do not feel comfortable gathering inside, so we offer these alternatives:
For those who plan to attend our in-person worship services, we have compiled the following guidelines. These procedures are for the well-being of others. We realize that with COVID-19, protocols may change over time. We need to remain flexible as we follow the recommendations of our Bishop Malone, Governor DeWine, and the Reopening Task Force. Our goal is to “Do no harm, Do good, and Stay in love with God.” (John Wesley)
Jesus said in Matthew 22:39 (NIV), “Love your neighbors as yourself.” By following these guidelines, we will show love to one another as we gather together.
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.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work through this ever-changing situation. May we be the body of Christ that takes precautions to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to follow safety guidelines around the COVID-19 pandemic.
