MASK OPTIONAL SERVICE WILL BEGIN AT A LATER DATE
The church leadership and staff have made crucial decisions regarding worship services and activities on campus. The decisions were made with prayer, advice from of our Bishop, the CDC, watching the numbers on the global pandemic website, local hospitals and the Habersham County School System.
Three weeks ago it appeared our numbers for COVID had stabilized. We decided it was time for a “mask optional service.” That service was scheduled to begin this upcoming Sunday, January 10, at 10:15am in the Connection, which was the Sunday after school was to resume.
On January 4, the Habersham County School System made the decision to go to virtual learning until January 25 (at the earliest). Our local hospitals are at 85% of capacity with COVID cases. Using our same formula for decision making, we have decided to delay the start of the “mask optional service.” The service will begin the Sunday after Habersham County Schools go back to in-school learning.
The “mask optional service” is certainly a goal for our church. It will begin once the community is stable.
Thank you for your prayers and your patience.
