To the Clergy and Clerks of Sessions of Savannah Presbytery,
“God is our refuge and strength,” proclaims the Psalmist. We draw on this promise especially in times of turmoil and change. Though we have not been able to gather in our churches for the past three months, we know that God has not abandoned us. God has been guiding us during this sabbatical period.
As you know, there is a lot of discussion about opening our country and resuming normal activities such as worship within our sanctuaries. With differing opinions on how and when we resume our community life, we must keep in mind the vulnerable populations within our congregations. While it remains up to each Session to determine when its congregation resumes in-person worship, we strongly recommend for your consideration the three-phase guidelines from the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta for reopening their churches.
In Christian Service,
The Savannah Presbytery Council
