Greetings In Christ
Last week our Governor issued an order allowing counties to require masks at public gatherings.
This week our county issued an order strongly encouraging churches to take use of mask.
In a desire to follow as best we can the encouragement of our county your elders met on 7 July to discuss these state and county mask regulations. In response they decided the following.
1. Masks should be worn upon entering the narthax and before being seated in the sanctuary.
2. Since we are seated in accordance with the protocol for social distancing, the mask may be removed when seated in the sanctuary.
3. Masks are to be worn as we proceed to and return from communion and can be removed once seated again.
4. At the end of the service, as Pastor announces to wipe everything down, masks are to be put back on and worn until outside the building.
In accord with these state and county guidelines We ask that when you are moving in doors you have a mask on. However, if for any reason breathing etc. you are unable to where a mask you are still welcome to join us for worship.
A simple way to remember when to where a mask is when moving in doors, if you are able, you should have a mask on.
These guidelines end on August the 3rd until then we pray you stay safe and healthy and look forward to the day when things can return more to the way in which we are accustomed.
Thanks for your understanding and patience.
In times of anxiety and frustration, The bride of Christ trust in the Lord for our daily bread life and salvation.
