IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
Dear First Church of the Resurrection,
 
As you have likely heard, not long after the Coronavirus was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, Stark County confirmed its first case of the Coronavirus at Mercy Medical Center.
 
Today (3/12), Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine, issued an order for the closing of schools for the next three weeks (beginning 3/16) and a halt on gatherings of more than 100 people for at least that amount of time.
 
Though the state cannot force churches not to meet, we, along with many other churches in Canton, feel that this measure is both appropriate and helpful.
 
Consequently, out of a concern for those among us who are most vulnerable to the virus and in an act of compassionate solidarity with the city of Canton and our neighbors, we are making the difficult decision to not gather for worship for the next three Sundays (3/15, 3/22, and 3/29).
 
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make decisions for what to do beyond that as appropriate.
 
The church office will remain open. Please call if you need anything or have questions.
 
Also, though the Leadership Council plans to call as many parishioners as possible, we invite everyone to take it upon themselves to check on one another and relay any needs that arise.
 
We remain the body of Christ – every member needing the support of every other member!  
 
Friends, this is not a cause for alarm. The likelihood of any of us contracting this virus remains low. The actions we are taking are not in response to a crisis, they are meant to help alleviate one.
 
All the best medical and scientific expertise indicates that decisions like this play a major role in reducing the spread of the disease, assisting medical personnel, and saving lives.
 
Choosing not to gather for worship is not a decision we make lightly. In this instance however, we receive it as an opportunity to love our neighbor and invite the Lord to meet us with His gracious provision.
 
Grace + Peace,
Pastors JR & Amy

Through our gathering time in worship, we desire to strengthen and
encourage each other and learn more about God.


Our purpose is to provide a family and a place to belong
for anyone seeking a new way and a new hope.
