As you are most likely aware, the COVID-19 situation has worsened dramatically and rapidly over the past week, with cases and hospitalizations returning to levels of concern in our area. Austin/Travis County health officials recommended that all persons (including the fully-vaccinated) wear masks indoors, and that businesses and organizations require masking on their premises. Also, Williamson County has moved to “Red” status for COVID-19 transmission.
As a result, and in consideration of our mutual covenant with our community, the Session has voted to return to a policy of mask-wearing during worship and other gatherings such as Christian Education classes and on-campus meetings, effective immediately. Masks are available in the main entry of each building.
Worship services will continue to be held in-person and livestreamed on YouTube. Many other groups are continuing to meet via ZOOM.
The Session will continue to monitor the situation and adjust policies as warranted by the circumstances.
We thank you in advance for demonstrating agape love for yourself and others through following the practices recommended to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
