Leadership at the Dakota Conference continues to monitor the rapidly changing impact of the coronavirus. The health and safety of church members, students, employees and communities throughout the conference is top priority.
Churches and faith-based locations in North Dakota were never covered under the Governor’s Executive Orders to close during the COVID-19 pandemic. As of May 12, if a location chooses to reopen, in consultation with their pastor, they may meet for prayer meetings and/or Sabbath services. Those entities are encourage to follow the CDC guidelines along with the Universal Protocols to prepare and clean the facility. In addition, good hygiene and adequate social distancing during services and gatherings should be practiced. It is also important to remind parishioners and members to make good choices regarding their high risk and most vulnerable members.
For those not attending, tithe and offerings may be given through Adventist Online Giving, whether to the local church or the Dakota Conference Adventist Church. Funds received at the Dakota Conference will be credited back to the local church. The online link is https://adventistgiving.org/#/.
Plans for Campmeeting 2020 continue. Dates have been changed from June 10-13 to July 30 - August 1, 2020. The King's Heralds will be with us for Sabbath.
God bless each of you as you serve Him in your local communities.
