Your Columbia Union Pathfinder Bible Experience (PBE) planning team has been closely monitoring the rapidly developing Coronavirus threat. We are attempting to strike a balance between responding diligently and not overreacting to the situation. We are considering alternative models to our traditional PBE event. However, it has become increasingly clear to us the necessity of postponing our PBE event. Thus, there will be no Union level PBE event held on March 21.
We will continue to closely watch how the virus continues to spread and evaluate its impact on our churches and communities. In early April, we will reassess the feasibility of rescheduling this event.
I thank you for your patience and understanding as we attempt to responsibly respond to this crisis. Please understand that our priority has been and always will be the safety and wellbeing of our Pathfinders.
I would like to express my personal appreciation to Sherilyn O’Ffill, our union PBE coordinator, and our planning team for their quick action and due diligence to this very fluid situation.
