Beginning Sunday, November 15, Laurens and Varina United Methodist Churches will be holding on-line video worship services only. These services will be posted early each Sunday morning on our facebook pages and on this website. This decision was made in keeping with the conference guidelines regarding worship during the pandemic. We are to go online services if the 14 day average positivity rate goes above 15%. Currently the positivity rate of Pocahontas County is 22.5% and still rising. We will be allowed to resume in-person worship once the positivity rate remains below 15% for 14 consecutive days. I know that this is not the ideal situation for anyone, but our overriding concern is for the health, safety, and welfare of all of God's children and of all our members and friends. As of now, all worship services will be on-line only until after Christmas. At that time, based on the guidelines we must follow, a decision will be made regarding a return to in-person worship.
