Due to the alarming spike of Covid-19, the difficult situation at our local hospitals, CDC recommendations, and the request of local officials, our Elders are recommending that you wear a mask indoors at Pinedale. We anticipate this being a short-term request until community spread subsides to manageable levels.
* We know masks are uncomfortable, and we don’t like this any more than you, but believe this is the best move for this time. And to be clear, we are not “mask police.” Each person must take individual responsibility. However, masks are one way to protect both you and others.
* With Sunday School classes meeting, both classrooms and halls can make distancing difficult, so masking in those places is especially considerate and appreciated.
* Reminder: We invested in the Halo System last year, and we believe it provides the safest possible environment. Our request for masks is an effort to go the extra mile to help people feel comfortable and safe in Worship/Sunday School, (as well as follow CDC guidelines and local mandates).
* If you feel sick on a Sunday morning—even if you feel like you MIGHT be coming down with something—err on the side of caution and join us online that morning.
We are all exhausted from this pandemic and eager to move forward with more normal practices. By God’s grace, we’ll get there. In the meantime, let’s all do our part to walk through this together.
John 13:34-35 – A new command I give you, Love one another. As I have loved you so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love on another.
