Dear Tapestry Members and Friends,
Because we care deeply about your well-being and because we want to be as proactive as possible in preventing the spread of the virus that causes Covid-19, the Board has decided Tapestry will NOT meet for worship or fellowship at CJCN beginning this coming Sunday morning (March 15). Instead, the Worship Team invites you to worship with the Church of the Larger Fellowship online Sunday at 7 pm CST https://zoom.us/j/224988882.
This decision was based on recommendations from our Unitarian Universalist Association, and in agreement with other area UU congregations. For the near future, we are choosing not to have in-person gatherings of 25 people or more. We would encourage our small groups to consider using an online forum for meeting such as google hangouts as much as possible.
Our first priority as a religious community right now is the health of those who are most at risk for COVID--19, both within our church and in the greater Houston area. While there are only a very small number of documented coronavirus cases in our city and region at the current time, health officials tell us that taking major steps right now is the only way to slow the spread of this virus.
If you feel you are at higher risk, please stay home as much as you can and know you are not alone. All of us here at Tapestry are with you in spirit. Even if you are not concerned about your personal risk of exposure, please be mindful to avoid public gatherings, stay home as much as possible, and wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water. Please urge your family and friends to do the same. This is the best way to prevent this virus from spreading and making more people sick.
This is a time for us all to take care of each other. If you have an urgent need, please call our message line at 281-301-7999 or contact the lay ministry team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We invite you to join our Facebook Tapestry Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston Community page if you haven’t already. In the coming days, please check in with others by phone or email. Reach out to anyone who you think might be feeling overly fearful or isolated. And please feel free to contact Randy Partain at email@example.com any time if you need to talk. If you have more general questions, comments or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for further updates on the status of other upcoming church activities.
We are a strong, loving, and resilient community and we will get through all this together.
Your Tapestry Minister and Board
