First Hungarian Reformed Church L.A.’s Response to COVID-19

In order to protect the health of our community and slow the spread of COVID-19, we suspended public worship (and our March 15th Commemoration Program) in our Sanctuary for Sunday, March 15th - for that day only. After March 15th, we will update you regarding March 22 and 29th. Prevention is our goal.

Today, March 15th, please join us online for public worship. Our Pastor, Zoltan Batori, L.L.M., wrote out his sermon. (For now, the sermon is Hungarian only.) We also published a March 15th Commemoration Program for after the worship, planned by Eva Matte.

While public worship in our Sanctuary may be suspended, let's remain close to God and each other. Please read the Pastor's sermon, reflect on Scripture in the Bible, take time to pray and reach out to God. Feel free to read the Pastor's sermon and worship at home, outdoors, at a (healthy) friend’s house, or anywhere you like - or at whatever time you prefer. Wherever or whatever time you worship, try to worship with someone else if you can.

Our public worship should not stop, even though this pandemic forces us to worship in a different way this Sunday (and maybe even over the next several Sundays) from the usual. The fourth of the Ten Commandments is “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8). We are God's people and we are meant to use our voices to pray, to rejoice and to respond to His call to us as a community of faith. Our Congregation is united not only by geography but most importantly, united in faith.

This is an evolving situation and the suspension of public worship in our Sanctuary is this Sunday only. We will send out an email regarding what we are doing for Sundays, March 22 and March 29.

In the meantime, please take the recommended precautions to stay well.

We send you good wishes and ask God for peace and blessings!
