As you have no doubt experienced, facing the COVID-19 pandemic has been a long road to travel. As a church, we’ve learned a lot, we’ve made some mistakes, but we have always strived to face it consistently by prioritizing loving God through loving our neighbors. In turn, you have responded wonderfully: bearing with us through outdoor services (including a rainy Christmas Eve!), video worship experiences, and various other restrictions – including masks. Thank you for your graciousness and patience.
With that being said, we are pleased to announce that as of this Sunday March 6, we are no longer asking or requiring anyone to wear a mask.
We have always followed the lead of the CDC, the New Jersey Governor’s Office, and our local schools, and as you most likely know, all three of those entities are currently dropping their mask requirements. We are following suit, confident in the falling COVID-19 statistics.
However, we want to encourage anyone who is reluctant to leave their mask behind: you are always welcomed to wear one if you choose.
As has already begun, we know that there will be a time where people “ease their way back” – from at-home to in-person; from fist-bumps to hugs; from masks to none. That’s ok, and as it should be. We ask that you treat each person with love and respect, wherever they find themselves in that process.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
