We believe that we are ready to open up the church and come back together for corporate worship. We know that there will be people on both sides of the issue, and we would like to give you all the information and leave it up for you and your family to decide when “you” are ready. This letter is to give you what we have decided would be best for the church moving forward with leadership from our Governor, the Wesleyan Church, and the South Carolina District of the Wesleyan Church. Please know that this is being entered into with much prayer, thought, and consideration. We also know that all of these plans could change by the time you receive this letter. This is just the world we find ourselves in right now. So as you read this letter know that we have a plan and failing to plan is planning to fail. We won’t fail to plan, but we will know that plans can and will change.
So with that said, we will be opening our church up to live services in the sanctuary on Sunday, May 24th at 10:30 am. The following letter explains what’s been done up to this point, and our plans for moving forward. This is just phase 1, in re-opening and as we continue to progress we will keep you informed on phase 2 and what that will look like in the near future.
I would like to thank you for weathering what could have been a debilitating 8 weeks for our church. Faith church has been through so much in it’s history that we didn’t need another storm, but this church has not only risen to the occasion they have “Thrived” though the past 8 weeks. I would like to thank you for your faithfulness to God and to our church. Thank you for believing in me as a pastor and in your dedication to our church family! I am blessed to call this my church. (well it’s not my church, but you get what I mean! LOL). I’m so blessed to be your pastor! This is only the beginning we’ve got a LOT more to do so buckle up!!
Pastor Tom Holloway
