UPDATE FROM THE ELDERS
July 19, 2020
Due to rising numbers of COVID-19 in our area and across the country, the CDC, health department, doctors and scientists are now recommending the wearing of masks. Many of the recent COVID cases are due to gatherings, such as our worship services. Because you can spread COVID before symptoms present, mask wearing is important.
While wearing a mask may be uncomfortable for you, it shows your love and concern for your neighbor. In order to protect our members, the elders are asking you to wear a mask during the entire time you are in the building and to continue social distancing. We also encourage those who are sick or who are most vulnerable to continue to worship online.
Galatians 5:13-14 says, “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
