Mercy Hill Sunday Gathering via Zoom - Jan 3, 2021
Due to the recent increase of hospitalizations in Brazos County, we have made the decision to postpone in person worship this week, and instead invite everyone to join us over zoom.
This week has seen hospitalizations increase to the point where health official are concerned about providing needed care if the trajectory of hospitalizations remains the same.
As reported by KXXN December 30th, "We have now, the highest level of hospitalizations that we’ve had throughout this pandemic, in Brazos county, and also, as of this morning, our ICU capacity is reaching near max capacity" (ICU beds were at 96%).
On Dec 31st, the Brazos County Health District reported ICU hospital beds exceed capacity with officials reporting 104%, causing Baylor Scott & White to initiate phase 1 of their surge plan.
In a statement, hospital officials asked the public to "embrace a sense of urgency," follow protocols, and for each of us to do our part to help prevent hospitalizations.
As of Jan 1, KBTX reported total hopsital bed occupancy in the Brazos County at 88%, and ICU capacity at 98%.
Therefore, in an effort to do our part at Mercy Hill to support our health care providers in this moment, we have made the decision to meet online this week via Zoom. While we are proud of the efforts made by MHC participants and we have had no community spread through our church, we want to take this step this week.
We will continue to monitor the situation and make a week by week decision.
Here's the info for this Sunday
We're starting off this new year together by considering what a gospel shaped life looks like.
In other words, considering the Good News of Jesus and the mercy that God has lavished upon us, how ought we to then live?
We'll look at some powerful words by the Apostle Paul written to followers of Jesus living in the heart of the Roman Empire.
