FaithBridge Family,

Throughout the pandemic, the FaithBridge Leadership Team has been meeting monthly (mostly via Zoom) to conduct regular agenda items but also to make decisions regarding COVID protocols and policies. At the August meeting, the Leadership Team made the decision to continue the current worship format (9:30 indoors, 11:00 outdoors) through September and to re-evaluate at the September meeting. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact Janet Spect, the Leadership Team Chair.

It was exciting to kick off a new worship series last Sunday called "Life of Love." The series will last for 5 weeks and cover the entire letter of 1 John. You are invited to read through the letter as we journey together. Here is a link to chapter 1. We hope to see you in worship at either 9:30 or 11:00!

COVID cases continue to be on the rise both in our community and beyond. As such, the Western North Carolina Conference has issued updated guidelines for churches encouraging the wearing of masks at all indoor church functions. The full guidelines can be found here. FaithBridge will follow suit and encourage everyone to wear a mask at all indoor church functions including the 9:30 indoor worship service. As we have said all along, we will do our best to care for the most vulnerable among us, so thank you for your flexibility and understanding.

Know that you are a child of God and that you are loved,

Pastor Ben
