As a church family and, particularly, the ministers of First Baptist, as leaders, are committed to watching and learning and responding each day as the COVID-19 situation in Massachusetts unfolds. Today, I am seeing cancellations of events both large and small being announced in our community and across the Commonwealth. Some of these are other events for children and young people – this was a marker to which I was looking to make my PNO decision. I believe that all of these cancellations are being made out of an abundance of caution and with a desire to work together as communities large and small to flatten the curve on how fast the virus spreads and to avoid overtaxing our health care systems. In light of that, although it may seem for some like an overly cautious choice, I am making the difficult decision to CANCEL this month’s PNO scheduled for this Friday. I do this out of an abundance of caution AND wanting to do our part of the wise community leaders and minimize exposure – in this case, not only for kids but for all of our volunteers of all ages.
We thank you so much for understanding. We love our PNO families, and we will be hoping to hold our April PNO as usually scheduled, on the second Friday of that month, April 10th.
Thank you for being part of our community!
