Letter to Church Congregation

updated August 29, 2020
 
Hello Advent Family,

When I reflect on this year, I recognize that although 2020 has brought a great deal of challenge, with God’s help we, at Advent, have met those challenges with steadfast faith. As we strive to love God, love each other, love our neighbors and love our communities well, Advent has served
as a lighthouse in uncharted waters.

We have continued to improve our weekly online worship experience thanks to both Cathy and John Thorla. Thanks to volunteers, pastors and staff, we have created a safe, in-person worship experience by using physical distancing, individual communion packets, one-way traffic flow and sanitizing between services. Sound and lighting improvements have also been made in the past several months that has enhanced our services for both the online and in-person worshipper. Our schools reopened on August 14th for the new school year thanks to our diligent staff and teachers who adapted to and implemented all the CDC standards necessary for in-person learning. Both new and returning students and families have adapted and are thriving. Advent Square continues, under Jo Taylor’s leadership, to set a high standard of care for our senior
residents despite the challenges and necessary precautions that are being taken to protect our most vulnerable. Advent Lantana has reopened for in-person worship and is growing. It has also become regular distribution point for Boca Helping Hands. Small groups are meeting safely in person and online and continue to create community.

That said, the Church Council believes it is prudent to bring back Advent’s Sunday morning fellowship time. Coffee and donuts will be served in a safe, appropriate manner after worship services on Sundays beginning September 6th. As always, your participation is a personal
decision that should always be based on your own comfort level.
 
Sincerely,
Steve Putnik
President
