North River's Unity Walk planned for July 12th is being rescheduled due to the recent spike in COVID-19 in Georgia and Cobb County in particular. Solomon, in his wisdom, explained that "In their hearts, humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps" (Proverbs 16:8.)
The majority of our elders and North River board members, in prayer and counsel with each other, have reluctantly concluded that postponement of this event is our wisest course. At a time when activities all around the state are being canceled and postponed, when Georgia ranks in the top 15 states in confirmed cases of COVID-19, and when the mayor of Atlanta herself just tested positive for coronavirus, this seems to be the safest course at present.
We're disappointed that the timing did not work out and we want to thank our worship team and many volunteers who poured time and creative energy into planning out the details for the event. Please note that the hard work and planning will not be wasted; North River will reschedule the Unity Walk as soon as we see that it is both safe and wise to do so. In the meantime, let's continue to let our light shine through serving our community in our small groups and families. Our goal is always to Love God, Love People, and Change the World.
