The governor’s new orders have raised a few questions regarding our Sunday morning gathering routine. With this in mind, we wanted to reach out to provide some answers and reassurances regarding our plans to move forward through these times of uncertainty.
To begin, we affirm that regardless of any government mandate, law, or regulation, God is in full control of His church and He maintains absolute authority over Redeemers Church (Mt. 28:18). Even through a time of ever-shifting governmental regulation, our mission and focus remains the same: Make disciples of Jesus Christ (Mt. 28:19-20).
As elders and pastors, we are tasked with ensuring sound doctrine (Titus 1:9) and equipping the saints for the ministry of building the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12). And frankly, we love this duty and consider it an honor to serve the Lord alongside you all.
How do we lead in unity- under the authority of King Jesus?
We are going to continue to have one gathering. All are welcomed. You are responsible for your own health, meaning, you may choose to wear a mask or not.
Above all, we will be compassionate to one another - with love, care and respect.
If for any reason this causes you or your family to feel unsafe, please come talk with us, or set up a meeting firstname.lastname@example.org - and we will try to look into some creative solutions. It’s important that we have these conversation around a table (with food preferably) and not on the internet.
It goes without saying, please don’t come to the gathering if you or a family member is sick.
