Jesus is the Reason
for the Sabbath!
Announcement: Due to our Governor’s requirements related to the coronavirus pandemic (reflecting the June 15 updates), we are worshipping with assigned distance between the pews and wearing masks while in fellowship less than six feet from one another. We also open and close each service singing outdoors (with the invocation, opening prayer, and benediction respectively). Only those who have COVID vaccinations (which we do not endorse) are not required to wear masks indoors with us and self-attesting is sufficient. No one will need to wear masks while outdoors (so neither during singing since this is outdoors and we do not face one another). Visitors are welcome as they abide by these guidelines. For an explanation of our position and procedure, see our article on Romans 13 here: https://www.reformation21.org/blog/submit-to-the-government-serving-god-to-save-lives as well as our collection of relevant Romans 13 commentary excerpts. See also our more recent article: https://www.reformation21.org/blog/moses-wore-a-mask-and-other-reflections-on-covid-19.
