Dear Church Family,
As you may be aware, our Illinois Governor has reinstated the mandate that face coverings be worn while indoors by all individuals, those vaccinated and unvaccinated, (ages 2 and over). This mandate was to take effect Monday, August 30, 2021. Earlier last week, the Illinois Great Rivers Conference encouraged local church leaders to convene to review and update the church’s COVID-19 health safety practices. Our Church Council met this past Tuesday evening and discussed best practices for our church and church family.
Effective immediately: When inside any area of the church, for any gathering, a well fitted mask or face-covering shall be worn. Please remember your mask for worship this Sunday. (vaccinated & unvaccinated)
Effective Sunday, September 5, 2021: No indoor food consumption for any gathering. Sunday fellowship time will still be conducted; however, no food or drink will be served.
More information may follow as we observe recommendations from local, state, and federal public health officials.
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to model the highest standards of care for others. The decisions the Church Council and our COVID Task Force Committee make are not taken lightly and are in the best interest of our church family’s health and well-being. If you have any questions or concerns you may direct these to Pastor Bob or Dana Ramsey.
Let us give thanks for God’s faithfulness and care. Let each of us do what we can to protect one another. Let us remain hopeful and confident in the grace of Jesus Christ.
