MASKS: To Wear or Not to Wear, That is the Question...
Concerning Masks During Worship:
As you may have heard, the county mayor did issue an edict calling for people to wear masks in public. Now extended through November. This was done in response to the recent spike in new COVID-19 cases. The same edict does say that the mayor cannot command the churches to do this based upon the constitution.

However, as has been the case for us all along as we try to cooperate with the governing authorities that God has placed over us according to Romans 13, the leadership team of the church is asking people who attend worship to wear masks for the sake of both yourself and those worshipping with you.

We do understand there are those who cannot wear masks for various reasons. We are asking those people to please sit up front. Just as the distance between the pastor and the people in the front is great enough that the chances of spreading the virus are reduced significantly, so people sitting on the front row are facing forward into a large space that significantly reduces the chance of spreading the virus.

If we follow these guidelines, everyone is giving a little with the thought of trying to help our neighbors hear about Jesus. We just want everyone to hear the Word, the most important concern of all. We pray that the same love that led our Lord to the cross where he gave up all for us leads each to sacrifice for our neighbor to help them receive the gift of Jesus.

To receive the sacrament worthily, a baptized Christian who is able to examine themselves in accord with the Word of God must be able to say yes to the following questions:

  • Am I sorry for my sins and repent of them intending to amend my sinful life?

  • Do I believe that Jesus died for my sins and forgives me?

  • Do I believe I am receiving the true body and blood of Jesus under the bread and wine for the forgiveness of my sins?
