(Updated 11/24/20) Lately, we have watched the COVID numbers rise in our state and county. We have also been told that the COVID numbers are likely going to increase after the Thanksgiving holiday. Last week I received an email from our United Methodist Bishop recommending that all Missouri United Methodist churches move to online worship only. For those reasons, we are indefinitely suspending in-person worship services at Hallsville UMC. We are keeping an eye on the county numbers and I am regularly consulting with our Church Council to determine the right time to begin in-person worship services again. Until then, you are welcomed to join us on our FACEBOOK PAGE (click to view) every Sunday at 10am for our live broadcast of the service. Facebook automatically records all services after their original broadcast for viewing at a later time as well. The timing of this COVID peak is very disappointing as we are getting ready to enter into the season of Advent but we are fortunate to have technological ways to stay in touch. I hope you are able to join us every Sunday at 10am on our Facebook page during the season of Advent.
