We’re all living through another variant of this pandemic. We hear the news, listen to the guidance of science, and obey the commandment of God to love one another. Executive Committee discussed what GSLC’s response to the current surge in infection rates might look like.

Here’s what we decided for the remainder of January:

Continue with our two services, but use individually packaged communion in our pews for now.

Reduce singing again down to one hymn at the end of the 10:30 service.Encourage physical distancing.

Encourage the use of our live-streamed worship for anyone who has been exposed to COVID, is feeling ill, is immune-compromised, or is not fully vaccinated.

Continue, of course, with mask requirements, no fellowship, and other basic mitigations we’ve kept in place throughout this pandemic.

Our Discipleship leaders have also decided to wait until February to return to Sunday School and Adult Forum. Generally speaking, we are asking you to use your own best judgement for the next few weeks while we ride out this surge in infection rates. While this strain appears to be less deadly, it is very contagious and we certainly don’t want to add to the burdens our health care systems are already facing. Please be safe, stay well, pray for healing and an end to this pandemic, and continue to worship in-person or online as you deem wise.

Thank you! Let us worship God together in peace, health, and joy!!
