***EM Worship Services to Move Online Starting 15 March***

***EM Worship Services to Move Online Starting 15 March***Dear friends,Many people in Taiwan and around the world are concerned about the spread of coronavirus. Here in the church we also take these concerns seriously and want to do our best to make sure everyone stays healthy, especially our many elderly members who are most at risk.Recently Taiwan’s government has encouraged people not to gather together in large groups. So with this in mind, the SLPC senior pastor and church elders have decided to change the way we worship. Starting on Sunday 15th of March we will no longer meet here at the church building for worship. Instead, Sunday worship will be broadcast online. Broadcasts will begin at regular worship times: 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. for Taiwanese services, 9:00 a.m. for Mandarin service, and 11:00 a.m. for English worship. Links will be posted on our EM website and Facebook page. Online worship will continue every Sunday up to and including May 3rd, though this may be revised as needed. During this time I and the church staff will still be in the office and on call for your needs.So remember: on Sunday mornings from March 15th, don’t come to the church building. Instead make yourself a stack of pancakes, put on some coffee, and join us online for worship from home. And let’s keep praying for quick and safe ending to this season of illness. May God’s blessings and care be with you all.Pastor Stephen Lakkis

Dear friends,

Many people in Taiwan and around the world are concerned about the spread of coronavirus. Here in the church we also take these concerns seriously and want to do our best to make sure everyone stays healthy, especially our many elderly members who are most at risk.

Recently Taiwan’s government has encouraged people not to gather together in large groups. So with this in mind, the SLPC senior pastor and church elders have decided to change the way we worship. Starting on Sunday 15th of March we will no longer meet here at the church building for worship. Instead, Sunday worship will be broadcast online. Broadcasts will begin at regular worship times: 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. for Taiwanese services, 9:00 a.m. for Mandarin service, and 11:00 a.m. for English worship. Links will be posted on our EM website and Facebook page. Online worship will continue every Sunday up to and including May 3, though this may be revised as needed. During this time I and the church staff will still be in the office and on call for your needs.

So remember: on Sunday mornings from March 15th, don’t come to the church building. Instead make yourself a stack of pancakes, put on some coffee, and join us online for worship from home. And let’s keep praying for quick and safe ending to this season of illness. May God’s blessings and care be with you all.
