Hello everyone, Our Ministry Team Leaders met to discuss our St Joe Back On Track plan. I want you to be aware of one big change, and a few other plans.
First, we are now designating our 10:30 AM worship service as a "masks required" gathering. Everyone, except for worship leaders while on stage, will be required to wear a mask while in the building and during worship. The 8:30 AM worship service will continue to be "masks optional/recommended" for everyone. This change was in response to worship attenders who have expressed a desire to worship in person, but cannot do so for health reasons because some of our members are not wearing masks. We wanted to make sure one of our services was also available for those who are unable or choose not to wear masks.
We would definitely like your feedback on which service we should establish as "masks required" in the future. For now, we simply chose the 10:30 AM, based on random feedback from those who need this accommodation.
The second thing I wanted you to know is that we will continue to offer online Bible study materials for parents with children. We are going to re-evaluate in July whether or not to restart Kid's Connection classes during at least one worship service. We WELCOME children in worship, no matter how noisy it might get! But, we do realize this is a difficult arrangement for the parents of smaller children! Parents, we need your feedback on what you think about restarting Kid's Connection.
I continue my sermon series "How To Walk Through Chaos" this Sunday by explaining why and how we must "Connect With God's Family" right now! I hope you will worship with us in person or online.
