Hello, friends. I miss seeing you very much.
Just want to share a few updates with you related to church life.
The interim council, which was elected by the session to make decisions until the session can meet regularly again, made a few decisions that I want to share with you.
All church services and activities on Wednesdays and Sundays have been cancelled until further notice due to concerns related to the corona virus.
All staff will be paid through the month of April. Most staff are still working, have shown their faithfulness and need our support financially
Full-time staff may work from home, if they so choose, or if developing situations demand it. You will find a staff person here most of the time should you call.
I’m grateful for the work of the council during this difficult time.
Peace to each one of you,

Dear members and friends of the Greeneville Cumberland Presbyterian Church,
On Sunday, March 15, the session voted to cancel all activities on Sundays and Wednesdays at the church for the next two weeks (through March 29). Staff will continue to work during the week. Church leaders will reevaluate the need to remain closed by the end of March.
We trust our decision will promote the health and well-being not only of the congregation, but also of the wider community which we are called to love. The next church newsletter will come out a little later in the week to include more complete information regarding our response to the pandemic.
We'll also share more information in the days ahead via facebook, along with periodic devotions and an abbreviated Sunday worship service.
While Wednesday and Sunday activities are postponed, mobile meals will continue for those currently on the list who still wish to receive them.
If anyone needs us, we're here to help.
With deep love and concern for you and in the name of Christ our true hope,
Abby, Andy and Jamie
