Shenandoah Congregation (San Antonio, TX)

Coronavirus update 3/13/2020

Dear Congregational Members,
In accordance with World Church Leadership direction, we will be cancelling church services for Sunday, March 15th.  This decision is made in an abundance of caution to reduce the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) by our church brothers and sisters.  Our first responsibility is to “protect the most vulnerable” among us (D&C 164:6a).
We hope to resume church services next week.  However, because this is a fluid situation, we will be monitoring local public health service recommendations over the next week and will update you to let you know the status of re-opening our church.  That said, the Pastorate is committed to finding ways for us to worship together.  We are actively working to provide opportunities for worship the following week even if circumstances don’t allow our meeting in the Sanctuary.   
In addition to closing the church to our worship services, we are closing the church to all rental arrangements for as long as the situation merits to help ensure a clean and safe building.  We will however continue exercising our cleaning service agreements. 
In the meantime, please be safe and we will be in touch over the course of the week.

Your Pastorate
