New York churches to open for worship SundayNEW YORK (UMNS) — New York Area Bishop Martin McLee reported Oct. 31 that all of the conference’s United Methodist churches would be open for regular worship on Sunday. “We were really blessed in the New York Annual (regional) Conference to not have any devastation at churches or any loss of life or injuries of any of our members, as far as we know,” he said.
Congratulations to the United Methodists congregations of New York for getting their buildings open for worship this coming Sunday.
Foundry has a policy of always being open for worship on Sundays. We will close our building during the week in weather emergencies but never on a Sunday.
We have walked to church in three feet of snow to have worship. Enough of us live within walking distance of the church that we can always have worship. When there are weather or other emergencies, these are the times we especially need to be together as a community in prayer and worship.
Good job, New York City United Methodists!!
