Church Council met on Tuesday, Aug 17.  The meeting was a week late due to several members not being able to attend the regularly scheduled time last week. Several items were discussed and decisions made of which you all should be aware.


 Masks in Church:



As most of you who follow news about COVID-19 are aware, the CDC has recently encouraged mask use for all persons in larger indoor settings, even those who have been vaccinated.  This is due to the Delta variant, which is much more transmissible than the initial COVID of last winter.  Early on, Council had decided to follow CDC guidelines.  As a result of this, we upgraded the air filtration systems in the Sanctuary and the Parish Hall and eliminated the use of printed bulletins.  We also monitor the level of carbon dioxide in the sanctuary to assure that these systems are working properly. 


The CDC has stated that even vaccinated persons may contract the virus, show no symptoms, and still spread the virus.  Most of our congregation has been vaccinated.  However, recent data shows Licking County to be in a high-risk situation with over 150 new cases of COVID each week. Following the latest guidelines, Council has decided that we should encourage masks when indoors at Church.



The wearing of masks in Church is not mandatory, but Council highly recommends the wearing of masks to protect all of us from COVID.



Times of Church Services and Communion:


Council also reviewed the possibility of returning to previous/normal church times and the distribution of communion.  Even though we want to return to normal, it seems that is not yet possible.  Due to the continuing COVID threat, it was decided that no changes in worship times and communion distribution would be made. 


Worship times will continue to be 10:00 AM on Sunday and 7:00 PM on Wenesday, and communion will continue to be by disposable cup in the pews.


Council wishes to thank all of you for being patient with our desire to return to things as they were, yet following guidance to keep us all from being victims of the Pandemic.  As always, make your concerns and wishes known to your Council members.  We will continue to try to act in your best interest.

Thank you. 

Gary Williams,  Council President
