AS WE CONTINUE MOVING FORWARD WITH WORSHIP ON SUNDAYS AT 10:00 a.m. we still encourage everyone to be respectful of one another’s varying comfort levels with respect to social distancing. And while mask-wearing is no longer our expectation for all who join us for worship, we do still fully support and strongly encourage mask-wearing for those more comfortable continuing to do so and for those who are unvaccinated against COVID-19.  As we continue to navigate life together… kindness matters… and per Christ’s New Commandment (in John 13:34), loving one another by caring for one another matters.  This approach was discussed and agreed upon at our June 8, 2021 Council Meeting.
