To the Presbyterian Church at Woodbury Family,

The church Session and staff continues to make necessary plans this week regarding public health concerns. It is a rapidly changing landscape, with lots of moving pieces, and we are responding, planning as is appropriate for everyone’s well-being. We are in communication with local government and very aware of the plans announced this week by local schools and Universities.

Because of our deep concern for the well-being of our church and community, beginning today, Monday, March 16, 2020, we will be cancelling all programming, events, activities, and shuttering the building. We are taking a Lenten Sabbatical and possibly beyond to ensure we are doing all we can to keep COVID-19 / Coronavirus from spreading.

This includes the cancellation of ALL scheduled meetings, rehearsals, Sunday worship, and outside groups in the church building.

On or about Wednesday, April 1st, we will update the congregation and community as to our plans. Please check the church website and your email for these updates.

As we continue on this Lenten journey unlike any other, please remember to check on neighbors, friends, and church members. Communication, support, and reassurance are ultimately important.

You can reach our staff members through their emails and cell phones.

We have made our decision not out of fear, but out of serious concern for the health of our church and our community.

Remember what the Apostle Paul said, “Do not be anxious, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hears and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:6-7)

The Peace of Christ be with you.
In Christ,
Rev. Dr. Philip W. Oehler, Sr.

Temptation, March 1, 2020, Psalm 32, Matthew 4:1-11

“In an age of quick-fixes, fast food, instant gratification, and Internet communication, the Lenten tradition seems like an ancient practice that is out of step with the age. Lent promises no immediate result, no instant answer, no dazzling communication from on high. Rather Lent is a call to disciplined inquiry and patient searching after the presence of God”.
