We are excited about the return of Sunday School next week! The cases of Covid-19 are decreasing in our area and across the state, and many churches have either opened up their facilities for Sunday School already or are preparing to do so this month.
We encourage each person to prayerfully consider what option is best for that individual. Many of our members have health issues that make in-person worship a bad idea. Other members have close contact with family members and friends who have health issues, and they may choose to return with masks and limit conversations. Still others have no underlying health issues and choose to return to both Sunday School and worship. 94% of people who have died with Covid-19 had underlying health issues, so we all need to be considerate of others. We are called by God to support one another and build each other up. That means supporting their decision for how they will worship! No one solution is right for each individual or family. So please respect one another's decisions and choices. In other words, people are not inconsiderate if they don't wear a mask while worshiping. In the same way, people are not lacking faith if they do wear a mask while worshiping. Each person should have the freedom to worship in the manner that he or she feels most comfortable. FBC Celeste has been so wonderful in regards to this issue, and I know each of you will continue to do so! We look forward to seeing you at church!
