“Love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor.” – Romans 12:10
“…resolve never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of another.” - Romans 14:13
"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others" - Philippians 2:3-4
Thank you for your patience and perseverance as together we navigate our way forward through this pandemic.
Thank you also to the 85 people who responded to our survey about new CDC guidelines. Of those 85 who responded, 95% have been fully vaccinated. When asked, if we adopted the most recent CDC guidelines that indicate those fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask indoors, would that make you more or less comfortable being indoors for worship, 69% felt more comfortable; 31% felt less comfortable. As children under age 12 cannot yet be vaccinated, we did hear directly from some of our young families. Of those, 65% said they would be comfortable with the new guidelines; 35% said they are not comfortable.
Based on this feedback, the following are Session’s updated worship protocols: Out of care for our most vulnerable, including our children, masks are encouraged by all while indoors. For those who are fully vaccinated, masks are encouraged, but not required. For those who are not fully vaccinated, masks are encouraged and required. We realize that vaccination is a personal choice for many, so vaccination status will be done on an honor system. That said, and to reiterate the biblical principles that have guided our protocols, we are called to put others above ourselves. Therefore, if you’ve not been fully vaccinated, we ask that you please wear a mask.
One practice we would ask of all: Please wear your mask until after the children’s message when the children have gone outside to the playground. This helps insure the safety of many of our children. If your child is not in that age range (K-3rd) who have children’s time in the playground and you are concerned for your child, please contact us, and we will work toward new ways to support you and your children. To that end, if you would like to volunteer to help our children’s ministry in this critical post-COVID season, please contact Kay Carr, Elder for Children's Ministry, or myself.
All other worship protocols, including no congregational singing, will remain in place for now as we continue to emerge together out of the pandemic. Especially as the CDC and we loosen protocols, we would emphasize the importance of contact tracing: If you experience COVID symptoms and/or test positive for COVID within 7-10 days after in-person worship, please let me know as your pastor, and I will communicate to other worshippers present, while always maintaining your confidentiality.
Again, thank you for helping us honor one another and put others above ourselves.
