Bulletin Announcements - August 29, 2021

Covid Message from Pastor Mark

Since Covid cases are increasing, especially among children and those with  weakened immune systems, the staff is asking that you wear a mask on Sunday mornings, until  Sunday, September 5th when we will reevaluate the situation. No activities or ministries are being cancelled. Sunday School and other meetings are  going to continue.  We are asking you to wear a mask for three weeks because:

  • we want to continue worshipping together and having Sunday School,
  • Washington County has a high level of community transmission,
  • the Delta Variant (which is the cause of most Covid cases now) is more contagious,
  • even those who have been vaccinated are at risk of having a breakthrough infection if they have a weakened immune system,
  • those who are vaccinated can still carry and spread the Covid-19 Delta variant.1

I know that wearing a mask can be frustrating and even uncomfortable, yet by   wearing one we can help take care of the most vulnerable around us.   Lord willing, the number of infections and spread will decrease and we can take another step back to normalcy.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!                 - Pastor Mark
