Saint Mark COVID-19 Task Force

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PC (USA) suggested churches form a task force to address this continuously evolving situation. A Saint Mark COVID-19 Task Force was constituted and this was approved by Session last week. Members include:

Jocelyn Callister (current Ruling Elder), Tom Fleisher, Rachel Kaufmann, Bill Merritt (current Ruling Elder) and Sharon Shoemaker
  • The charge to the Task Force is to:
    •  Act as an interface between the various authorities providing   recommendations/regulations impacting our church and congregation
    • Provide advice to the Session for best practices during the pandemic
    • Interact and interface with Saint Mark Ministry teams as needed
    • Address other tasks as needed in this ever-changing situation
  • Our plan is to provide updates as part of the Saint Mark Weekly eNews
  • The following websites can be accessed to help understand local and state guidance/ regulations currently in effect as well as national guidance from the CDC:
  • A wonderful quote to keep in mind during these difficult times was offered by Admiral William McRaven in his recent Washington Post editorial, "...make no mistake about it, we will prevail, because the only thing more contagious than a virus is hope."
