Planning for Re-opening In-person Worship

Going forward, each of our congregations must make its own choices about what risks it will take; there are no absolute guarantees that following a particular program of sanitation will keep your congregation free of contagion. Each of our contexts and each group of members is different. I promise you to give you the best advice I can, and assure you that if I must, I will err in my advice on the side of your physical safety. Our spiritual welfare is in God, and nothing—not even the invisible threat of a virus—can stand between us and the God who loves us. But the virus is real, and our responses are shaped by the advice of medical authorities. We trust in God for our life in Christ; we trust in science for our public health. -Bishop R. Guy Erwin, May 25 2020
