A message from The Nett in response to the coronavirus

Dear Nett Church Family,

I want to let you know that our staff and leadership in the church has been prayerfully listening and preparing for how to respond appropriately to the growing concerns about the Coronavirus.  Given our fundamental commitment to the safety of those whom we love and serve, the uncertainty surrounding nature of the virus and its spread, and our desire to play a proactive role in society's response to this emerging situation, we are taking the required step of cancelling all worship services and weekly activities for the time being.  

Please know that we have arrived at this decision after prayerful deliberation and following direct guidance and protocol from the Bishop of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church.  We want to let you know that while we will not be having worship services on our campuses, we will be having online worship at 11:00am each one of these weekends. Therefore, we highly encourage you to join us online at on our worship page or on Facebook. Click the links below to get started.

We also want to let you know that during this time our staff will be available via appointment and will work eagerly to meet the pastoral care and operations needs of the church. Thank you for being prayerful and flexible during this time. This is a time for us to draw together and care for each other, our community, and our world. See you Sunday (virtually) and remember to Trust and Breathe.

Rodrigo C.
