2020 River of Life – Cancelled

 

2020 River of Life

It is with deep regret that we have decided to cancel River of Life for this year.  We have prayed about this for the past month and do not feel that we can move forward, at this time.  The Shelter in Place continues to be a concern; we have only received 4 nominations from homeowners; we have only received one donation; and our youth groups have not even been able to meet to handle registration.  All of these elements make it impossible to have plans in place for River of Life on June 3.  We have also considered the liability to our church should a youth come to River of Life and possibly contract COVID-19.  We cannot afford that kind of risk for LUMC or River of Life.  We are certain you understand and we know that you will support our decision, as you always have.  For that, we are grateful!

We are continuing to pray and seek the Lord.  There may be some other form of outreach that He leads us to do in the spirit of River of Life later on this year.  Please pray for that, as well.  Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do for this ministry!  It is vital for our community and for the youth that attend…truly life changing experiences that happen each year!  Pray that God will continue to have His anointing on River of Life and that He will guide us in ways to reach out to our community in a new and different way this year!

Thank you again for your prayers and support!  We love each of you and miss gathering with you each week!  Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand!

All our love,

Chuck and Leigh
