We are sad to announce that our next United Night of Worship originally scheduled for April 26 is cancelled. This decision was made in light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the extension of the White House's "Stay at Home" guidelines, and Michigan's cancellation of face-to-face schooling for the remainder of the school year.
At this time we are open to the idea of rescheduling this event but we will make no plans to do so until the pandemic subsides. Churches and youth leaders can expect to hear from us in late-spring / early-summer if there is the possibility of rescheduling.
To the students who are graduating this year, we know that this announcement is one more disappointment in an ever-growing list of disappointments. This is not how you hoped your senior year would go, and we grieve that loss with you. But we cherish the memories we've made together at United and are so grateful for your love and support, especially those of you who have been with us since the very beginning.
Please know that while we may not be able to gather this spring as we intended, we are nevertheless "United" in Christ. No cancelled event or virus will ever change that. We pray that the nights we gathered as one in worship have given you a glimpse of the Kingdom that God is building right here in this corner of the world, and that you have grown to love and feel connected to your brothers and sisters in Christ regardless of where they're from, what they look like, or what local church they belong to.
United with you in Christ,
Put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. (Colossians 3:14-15)
