Back to church?
« on: May 27, 2020, 08:58:51 am »
Churchgoers, what's the current situation with yours? Are they opening and are you planning to go back as soon as they do? Mine is starting to try to make the decision when to open. I bet a lot of people will still want to worship from home for a while even after services resume.

The governing body of JWs will make that decision to all when im sure it will be safe to resume normal service.As of now where the virus is still ongoing there is still no door to door for ministry.Bible studies via phone and meetings using Zoom.

And dont forget,we all have JW.org,a site like no other to learn the bible truths.

We had services last weekend. People had to sign up to attend to keep the attendance at 25%.  Lots of safety measures in place. Some people wore masks, some not. Everyone practiced social distancing. It was good to be back.

I knew what you meant clown.You can trust Gods decision when it will be safe...you even agree in your statement.You better worry about virus spread by other sects for now and then you might really catch it!!

Our governing body encourages us to stay home....either virtual worship or outdoor with lots of social distancing....our church is staying online for a while especially with lots of older members

What is over-looked too is churchs losing money.

They forget Jesus words RE the truth.Jesus said,you received free,give free.Something TRUE GODS people do worldwide.



“For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and their marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”—Heb. 4:12.

we have been having online service each week right now it is still too soon in Illinois to go any further. I do miss seeing my friends face to face instead of online.

Our church is still not open and doesn't have any plans to open soon. We have a large population of elderly people in our congregation, so it doesn't make sense to our pastor to open the doors just yet. We have, of course, been having services online, complete with the music ministry, etc., so it's not like we've been missing that part of church. Of course, not seeing everyone there has been difficult for a lot of people, but we know that this pandemic won't last forever and we'll be seeing each other in person soon enough.  :peace: :heart:

I am enjoying the services from our church on line.   I like to know that even if I go out of town or have something to do, I can still catch the  service on line.   We also have fellowship with each other on line and zoom.  We have so many elderly and several with chronic illnesses that we will not rush back to in person services.

For now my church is not open. City doesn't want mass gatherings or any gatherings at the local churches at this time . Can't blame them you don't want to catch corona
