CPC Re-entry Information

To the CPC Community of Faith:

 

In accordance with the most recent CDC Guidelines, at a called meeting of the Session held on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, the board voted to allow fully vaccinated individuals to come to worship without wearing a mask.

 

Session is delighted to be moving closer and closer toward "the new normal" but realizes that we must proceed carefully. Therefore, social distancing, entry through fellowship hall, and sign-in for worship will continue.

 

And, while the board understands the desire of individuals to worship without wearing a mask, it also acknowledges that there are those among us who will not have been vaccinated:

 

  • Children under 12

  • Those who choose not to be vaccinated

  • Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine for medical reasons

 

With this in mind, please be aware that I will continue to wear a mask from time to time during worship, especially when I am with the children. And I expect that there may be those among us who may feel more comfortable continuing to wear a mask in close company. And so, please proceed with kindness and Christian charity toward all.

 

For if then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete . . . Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:1ff).

 

And in everything, do to others as you would have them do to you (Matthew 7:12).

Many blessings,

 

The Rev. Annette Eckerd Goard

Moderator of Session
