St. Paul’s Re-Entry Updates
March 29, 2022 Re-entry Update
Effective immediately masks are optional at St. Paul’s in all areas except for our nursery. This change includes worship, Kids Connection, and Youth Group as well.
We know that this announcement will bring with it a mix of emotions. There is some joy, anxiety, fear, excitement, and disappointment. We get it. It’s been a long journey! Thank you for the respect and care you have shown one another while we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic.
However you are feeling about the announcement, we want to assure you that we are in this together. We still believe that God’s love is expansive and unconditional and we are called to love one another like God loves. You are welcome to continue masking. We still want you to stay home if you are sick. Thank you for doing everything you can to keep the trust of the congregation for our gathering times at St. Paul’s.
While we have some return to normalcy (like coffee!), we know that it’s going to continue to feel awkward for a while. We won’t be perfect as we unmask and interact, but the hope is that we can be Good Enough with God’s help.
This announcement doesn’t mean that we are automatically done with COVID-19 either. Things might change and require us to return to a more protected level of safety in the future. We will continue to be conservative in our approach and monitor case numbers and health recommendations closely.
Thank you all so much for your grace for this team, for this church, for one another and yourselves. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me or Heather Edvenson, Re-Entry Team Chair.
