Greetings Crenshaw Church of Christ,
As each day passes, we continue to see an increase in COVID-19 cases in Southern California. This virus is highly-contagious and it can be especially threatening to those who fall into high risk categories of having compromised immune systems, those over the age of 60, those with heart disease, lung disease, diabetes or cancer. Last night, Governor Gavin Newsom called for all Californians to stay in their homes with the exception of making essential trips to get food, go to medical appointments and or to the pharmacy.
In an effort to keep our members safe, we are now transitioning to a purely virtual worship service. The 8am service will be streamed on-line. The service will be recorded and available for streaming after the conclusion of the 8am service.
We are encouraging those who can, to shelter at home and to participate in our communion service by using unleavened bread (crackers) and the fruit of the vine (grape juice). For those who need communion emblems we will make them available for your pick-up Saturday, March 21st between 10am-12pm noon. Simply drive through the parking lot to pick up the individualized communion cups.
We understand the inconvenience this may pose for some, however it is imperative that we take the appropriate measures out of an abundance of caution to keep our congregation healthy and safe. Please reach out to one of our Deacons should you have any questions or concerns.
Tyson L. Moore
Minister - Crenshaw Church of Christ
