SESSION STATEMENT ON RESPECTFUL PROTOCOL (8/8/21):
As Christians our primary concern is care for others and ourselves.
As the Delta variant of Covid-19 puts people in the hospital who are unvaccinated and can make sick even those who are vaccinated, what is our Christian response?
Since those who are vaccinated can still get the virus and can pass it on to others, what is our Christian response?
As we strive to care for others and ourselves at First Presbyterian Church, what is our Christian response?
Shouldn’t our Christian response be to do what we can to help care for others and ourselves? Given the heightened impact of Covid-19, the Session strongly recommends that everyone – unvaccinated and vaccinated alike – wear masks during worship and at small group gatherings. Further, we encourage all who are unvaccinated to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
