The OKC "Power-10"
Oklahoma City, OK: Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt has asked the city for a voluntary "Power-10," ten days of intentional social distancing in an attempt to lower the "tsunami" of COVID-19 cases over the holidays. On November 19, Holt announced that he will issue a new emergency proclamation to enforce Gov. Kevin Stitt’s new statewide restrictions on bars and restaurants, which means Oklahoma City police will enforce the restrictions in Oklahoma City limits.
Some of Mayor Holt's recommendations include:
Wilmont's Compliance with 'Power-10'
Wilmont staff has met with other church leaders who agree to implement the following:
Further, Wilmont will NOT broadcast worship live for the remainder of November (the next two Sundays). While we deeply regret this decision and recognize that many families are wanting to stay connected with their church while remaining home-bound, we have experienced some technical problems that prevent our broadcast at this time. We are actively working to resolve these issues with our equipment vendors and will return to live worship broadcasts as quickly as possible. During this season, we would encourage you to visit our Facebook page or YouTube channel and to catch up on recent worship events and sermons during our "Course Corrections" sermon series.
Your staff and church leaders greatly regret the necessity to make these decisions. We know our decisions will seem too restrictive for some and not restrictive enough for others. You will remember that just last week our pastor requested our patience and grace as he works with other leaders in the church to guide us through an unprecedented series of events. For years we have benefited from the ministries of Wilmont, receiving help in life's trials and growing close to the Lord through the investment of others. Please use this time to pay forward what God has done in your life by ministering back to your church.
