How We Are Responding
March 8, 2022
“New occasions teach new duties”
When James Russell Lowell wrote those words, he could have been speaking of the Covid-19 global pandemic. Over the course of the last two years, we have grieved the loss of so many lives and we have adapted in so many ways. I continue to marvel at the creativity of this church, the versatility of its leaders and the resilience of its members.
Now begins the next chapter.
Effective immediately, masks will be optional for all church activities. This includes Sunday morning worship, educational programs for all ages, Session and committee meetings and weekday operations in the church office. (The Nursery School has been mask-optional since mid-February).
The elders of this church have not made this decision lightly. But given the new guidance from the CDC, and the relaxing of mask mandates throughout our region, we feel the time has come to make this change.
We are also committed to preserving new practices that benefit our church and help to keep it safe. To that end, we will:
In this next chapter, we will strive to give people options: masked or unmasked, in person or online. Our hope and prayer is that each member and friend of College Hill Presbyterian Church will make the choice that is best for them, (Speaking of which: If you have not yet been fully vaccinated and boosted, please consider doing so for the safety of our community).
I am so deeply grateful for God’s great faithfulness to us, and for your care and consideration of one another. Please keep College Hill Presbyetrian Church in your prayers. May we embrace new duties for the sake of God’s new work in our midst.
Grace and Peace,
