Please Wear Your Mask to Church

At our recent Church Council meeting on September 15, it was decided that we ask all our parishioners to wear their masks to worship beginning Sunday, September 19. The Leelanau County Health Department statistics indicate an uptick in positivity rate. . With this in mind, the Church Council held a thoughtful discussion to consider how we can best offer safety to all the members of our Church family. None of us want to return to the times of closing our doors and only having online worship, so we thought that the masking opportunity presented one of the best ways of offering care, consideration, and safety to each other.

We realize that not everyone will be in favor of returning to wearing masks, so we would remind you of some of the other guidelines we have tried to follow in the past:

  1. If you feel concerned about the coronavirus, and you have yet to be vaccinated, please get your vaccine shot.
  2. If you have been vaccinated, please either wear your mask or consider the possibility of staying home and watch our service online through YouTube or Facebook.
  3. If you have been tested and receive a positive test, by all means, quarantine for the two-week period suggested.

Please know that we will be checking the County health department numbers on a weekly basis. When this current uptick subsides, we should be able to return to going without masks. So let’s do what we can to get through this time together. Let’s be kind and considerate to each other. This is a health issue, so let us offer care to one another.
