CHURCH COUNCIL VOTES TO
RESUME IN-PERSON WORSHIP
FOR THE FULLY VACCINATED
Starting May 1 & 2
ALL SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO BE LIVE STREAMED, TOO
WE WELCOME ALL WHO HAVE BEEN
FULLY VACCINATED TO
COME TO IN PERSON WORSHIP
For your safety we urge you not to attend until you have received a full vaccination including the two week waiting period. We do not wish to put anyone’s health at risk.
Masks and physical distancing will still be required at worship as we begin this new protocol. With so many folks having been vaccinated, we feel this is the right time to return to a safe practice of in person worship.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE WITH RETURN TO IN PERSON
1. Please return to worship only after you have been fully vaccinated including the two week waiting period. If you are unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated we discourage your attendance until you have the protection of the vaccines.
2. Masks and physical distancing will still be required as an extra safety
precaution. Those weaning masks may both speak and sing liturgy and songs.
3. No “fellowship food” after church for now.
4. Worshipers will be urged to gather outdoors after worship for fellowship, not indoors. When we are gathered outside after church for fellowship masks will not be required.
5. We will stick to CDC guidelines for gathering.
6. Church Council will continue to review our policy in
regard to worship and update as necessary.

There are many thoughts to ponder from this sermon....but here are just 2; Drawing distinctions in people (if it weren't for these people we would be happy) and in today's gospel Jesus said (and we are paraphrasing) it is not what goes into your mouth but what comes out.
