Dear Church Family, May 20th, 2021
Within the last week the CDC updated their recommendations regarding mask wearing. For those who have been fully vaccinated, they no longer need to wear a mask unless it is required by a business or local/federal officials. Governor DeWine immediately implemented this updated recommendation for the State of Ohio.
Throughout the pandemic MMBC has tried to follow the recommendations of health experts and government officials. Our congregation has faithfully abided by the precautions taken during this time. With the recent updates in mask wearing, we believe we no longer need to require wearing masks in the church.
We realize that not everyone has been vaccinated and that some may not yet feel comfortable socializing without a mask. Please understand that we respect each individual’s choice. Every other pew in the sanctuary will continue to be roped off and the option to observe worship in the parking lot will continue to be offered. We strongly encourage anyone who has not been fully vaccinated to wear a mask for your own protection.
Although we are still a long way from “normal,” we give God praise for the progress that has been made fighting Covid-19. Thank-you to each of you who have observed the steps our church has taken throughout this pandemic. There certainly has not been a unified opinion about how to approach this crisis, however out of respect we have all worked together to do our part in fighting the pandemic. We will continue to remain vigilant and we ask for your continued prayers and support.
