As seems to be the case throughout the pandemic, things are changing all the time. We have recently been informed that that the statewide mask mandate does not include churches. At this time, we are suggesting that masks be worn during church services but we are leaving the final decision up to the individual. In all of this we understand how divisive this issue has become and ask that whatever you decide that you please keep your neighbor in mind. Pay attention to those around you and make decisions out of love for one’s neighbor.
1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.
