“Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule and mind the same thing,”. Philippians 3:16.

I thank the pandemic council for their continued work and updates.  I also thank each of you for your patience and adherence to the protocols we have instituted for the health safety of our congregations.

The Pandemic Council recommended today, 1. All current protocols remain in place until further notice, 2. The sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and feet washing be held in abeyance until further notice and 3. encourage our members to consult with their primary care physicians for receiving the 3rd and current booster vaccine.  Along with the SEC, I concur and approve this recommendation.
