Support
Please let us know if you need someone to call you or if you know of someone in need. During this time of limited physical contact, we will find creative ways to be the loving embrace of God to each other and our neighbors. Specifically, the Deacons will be reaching out to our most vulnerable members. They will be checking in to see what support may be needed, such as meals, grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, etc.


Southminster and COVID 19

Covid 19 Plan
We are constantly evolving and adapting as we live into the new reality of being Church and being a community of faith called to serve as the hands and feet of Christ in our neighborhood and beyond.
The session recently adopted a COVID-19 plan, which may change as the science and protocols on the virus continues to progress…

Building Use
As we continue to navigate Covid-19 at Southminster, we are implementing a few protocols for the cleanliness of the building and safety of all. As it currently stands, Southminster is in pre-phase 1 of re-opening the facility (as outlined here). It is being requested that anyone planning to use the facility (within the required specifications of the re-opening plan), to please contact Steph Gallagher in the church office (secretary@southminsterchurch.org) to set up a time as well as to inform her what part of the facility will be used when visiting. Steph and Josie will be working together to ensure the building is maintained and any areas needing attention are taken care of during Josie’s cleaning regimen. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this.

Office
The Church office will not be open on a daily basis. Appointments are necessary to meet with Stephanie. Please contact us if you need to set up a time.
Please make sure any announcements for the bulletin are sent into the office by 12:00pm Wednesdays.

**Life after Loss Support Group**


For the safety and protection and in response to the recommendation of social distancing, this group is currently on hold from meeting in person. We will provide updates here as we navigate through these times.

On Saturday January 11th, 2020, we will launch a Life after Loss Support Group that will offer us the opportunity to listen to and support one another; to love one another as God has loved us. The group will be coordinated by Jim O’Dell and Edee Rolli.
We will welcome those who have experienced any kind of loss:
the loss of a loved one; the loss of a job; the end of a friendship, relationship or marriage; a missed opportunity – where a door was closed, and no window opened.
The first meeting of the Life after Loss Support Group will be held at Edee’s home on Sat. Jan. 11th at 1:30 p.m.
Please contact Jim O’Dell or Edee Rolli if you are interested.
