We just want to take a couple moments to update you on how the Ventura Vineyard is responding to COVID-19 in light of recent updates.
As you know, the news has been changing frequently over the past few days, and the latest recommendation has been for groups of 10 or more to stop meeting. The Ventura Vineyard Leadership Team met last night to discuss what’s in the best interest for the health and safety of our congregation, and to also be a part of helping the community stop the spread.
Effective immediately we are cancelling our in-person Sunday morning services, as well as our small groups, for the remainder of the month of March. However, we are still going to have an online video service this Sunday and next Sunday at 10:00am, using a service called YouTube Premiere, which acts as a sort of “watch party”. You can log in and even chat in real-time while the service plays. This will be a great way for us to still be able to connect to one another and combat the loneliness and isolation of social distancing.
