KunaNaz’s Official statement on the COVID -19 / Coronavirus

On March 14, we made the decision to suspend services and church activities to prevent the spread of COVID-19, in an effort to lovingly protect those who are most vulnerable. On March 25, Governor Little issued a statewide stay-home order, limiting gatherings and workplaces that could remain open to those who were “essential.” This week, Governor Little laid out a four-stage plan to reopen Idaho businesses and workplaces by the end of June, according to the experts’ best guesses in a best-case scenario.

While the criteria lists “houses of worship” as being allowed to open in Stage 1, the CDC recommendations for this stage are still that “gatherings, both public and private, should be avoided.” It’s not until Stage 4 that “gatherings, both public and private, of more than 50 people, where appropriate physical distancing and precautionary measures are observed can occur.”

What does this mean for KunaNaz?

It means that it is likely that we won’t be gathering together for worship in the church building until after May, and probably not until well into June. And that is in the best-case scenario, fully dependent upon the criteria being met for the State of Idaho to advance to Stage 4. We will provide another update in about a month regarding when we expect to be able to meet together again.

While we are eager to gather together to worship as we prefer, we cannot risk our most vulnerable and contribute to a possible second outbreak. In the meantime, we will continue church online. We will continue to pray for each other. We will continue to encourage one another as the Holy Spirit inspires us. We will continue to see what God is doing in our midst. We will continue to be the church!
