Hi Mercy Family,
This afternoon Governor Tim Walz moved Minnesota into a peacetime state of emergency. As part of this announcement, Minnesota Department of Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm advised against gatherings of more than 250 people. She also recommended practicing “social distancing” by placing at least six feet of space between individuals.
In light of this new guidance, Mercy’s Sunday, March 15 services will be ONLINE ONLY. We will be streaming our 9AM service to Facebook Live. Please join us virtually for our regular service structure with announcements, worship, and sermon. The recording will be available for several hours for individuals who wish to watch the service online at 11AM. There will be no MercyKids or MercyYouth on Sunday, March 15.
Mercy staff and leadership will continue to seek guidance, evaluate options and communicate next steps. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Please follow us on Facebook or at our website for the most up-to-date information. And we encourage you to share this message with individuals in your Groups or social circles at Mercy.
Jon Marsden and our Mercy Staff
