Dear Members and Friends of Grace,
As a result of the increasing COVID infection rate in our state and county, the Back to Normal Committee met last evening, August 5, to review Grace’s COVID guidelines. With guidance provided by the CDC, local health departments and the Wisconsin Council of Churches, committee members unanimously decided that for the well-being of the Grace community and the larger community our current COVID policy would be modified. Therefore, effective immediately:
1. Masks need to be worn by anyone over the age of four who enters the church building regardless of vaccination status.
2. Congregational singing during worship will be temporarily suspended.
While we are all disappointed by the increasing COVID infection rate numbers and our need to return to masking we do so out of love and concern for not only ourselves but our vulnerable neighbors.
If you have any questions regarding this decision, please contact Pastor Julie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Bob Mead.
In ministry with you,
