JOIN US FROM 21st March FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP

Dear APC Friends in Christ,

We have some good news to share with you!

At this week's Church Council meeting we voted to approve several important items related to our congregational life and ministry. The key informational items that we want to communicate to you are the following:

APC will re-open for in-person, Sunday morning worship services starting on 21 March 2021 at 10:00 am. Of course, during the current time of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Sunday worship services will have only a limited number (30) of designated seats for worshippers. In order to attend worship services, persons must pre-register on ChurchSuite, as well as observe health and safety requirements inside the church building.

On 21 March 2021 APC also will start having in-person, Sunday morning Children's Church classes in the Fellowship Hall starting at 10:00 am. The number of children that can attend each week will be 10. In order to attend, children must be pre-registered on ChurchSuite.

The pre-registration process for the 21 March worship service and the 21 March Children's Church IS OPEN.

Beginning on 15 March, small groups (maximum 12 participants) may meet in the church sanctuary or in the fellowship hall, while observing all health and safety measures in the APC Guidelines. To book, please contact apcoffice@apcbonn.de a minimum of 48 hours in advance (2 work days).

However, the APC Church Council recommends that groups continue to meet virtually at least until 19 April 2021.

A Live Stream worship service will be available every Sunday at 10:00 am on the APC YouTube channel for persons who will be participating from home.

In order to keep you up to date and give you information about how to pre-register on ChurchSuite, the Council is providing the following documents to assist you in understanding the practical steps that will enable all of us to move forward in ministry together as we implement these procedures:

We thank you for your prayers and for your faithful cooperation, as we prepare to move into this next phase of congregational life together.

In Christ,

The APC Council
