MASKS IN ASSEMBLIES – NOTE FROM THE ELDERS

On Monday, July 6, the Madison County, Alabama leadership issued a mandate that personal masks must be worn in public places beginning Tuesday, July 7, at 5:00 p.m. This mandate makes an exception for houses of worship but strongly encourages compliance. We, as elders, believe the houses of worship exception has nothing to do with our safety or health. 

In order to demonstrate our love for all those who attend, beginning this Sunday, July 12, the wearing of masks is required for all who attend assemblies while in the building. We, in accordance with the mandate, will permit any person to remove their mask only while speaking on the stage. However, no one should be sitting within 6 feet of the stage. 

Further, this makes separating into 2 groups (one in the gym and one in the auditorium) unnecessary. The primary assembly room will be the gym and any overflow will go to the auditorium. All current seating limits will remain in place.

We are fully aware of the burden this will place on some. And we fully understand the frustration of this change.  We feel the same frustration. We will continue to stream our assemblies for those unable or unwilling to assemble in person. We encourage everyone to make a faithful decision about your in-person assembly. Out of our love for our congregational family, we believe this to be the best for all.  No one on the staff or in the office is responsible for our decision. If you have issues or concerns, please direct them to one of us.

Jamie, Rondell, Chip, David and Robert
