Dear RED Church Family,
The past 15 months have been challenging for everyone. We are so thankful that despite the hardship, we've been able to go through this season together, as a family. The recent announcements by the CDC and our governor are an opportunity for us to review our safety measures and make some adjustments.
Before we detail our new guidelines, we want to reinforce the heart of Jesus: we love one another; we serve one another; we consider others as more important than ourselves. With that heart attitude in mind, we respect one another’s choices and decisions. Some of us are vaccinated, some of us are not. Some of us will keep wearing masks, some of us won’t. And some of us will continue to stay at home on Sundays and watch our online services until a future date when vaccination and immunity are more widespread. Thank you for your grace for us as we have tried to navigate this turbulent season. Also, thank you for your grace for each other.
We realize that with a church of our size, we have a variety of convictions about what the safety measures should be. We humbly believe the guidelines that follow reflect the direction and wisdom that the Lord has given us. We hope and pray that you will join us in honoring these guidelines (see below). As we all do this, it will enable us to remain united in the Spirit and bound together with hearts of peace (Ephesians 4:3).
We value your prayers and we are thankful for each one of you!
Love in Christ,
The Elders & Pastors of RED Church
