Bishop Directs Maryland Churches Not To Gather In Church Buildings For 2 Weeks

From Bishop Easterling – March 12, 2020

“Following this afternoon’s press conference by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in which he declared a state of emergency, Bishop Easterling is directing all United Methodist churches in the state of Maryland to not gather in their church buildings for two weeks; for conference camps and archives to close, and for the Mission Center building to close. Conference Center staff will work remotely.”

The Bishop also said, “United Methodists throughout the conference should be checking on their neighbors and offering pastoral care to those in need whom they encounter.”
