Update from Pastor Lynn Leonard

May 14, 2021

Good afternoon all!

This morning I received notice from the conference giving guidance to the local churches in regard to the new CDC guidelines. I have consulted and informed our elected leadership.

As of this Sunday, May 16, masks will be optional in our worship space for those who have been fully vaccinated (received vaccines - 2 Pfizer or Moderna, or 1 Johnson and Johnson and are past the two week waiting period). We will still sit separated as family units. We will continue to have congregational singing.

We will have a "safe zone" for those that will feel more comfortable.

Please feel free to do what is comfortable for you and your family.

I want to give thanks for all in leadership roles. Maresi will give leadership to future children's ministries as it involves children who may not be vaccinated and Peggy will give leadership to future music ministry.

As we go forward, please continue to pray for all those affected by covid worldwide and give thanks for all those who are involved in their care.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Love and Peace,

Pastor Lynn
