*Covid Update for August –
The Covid Task Force met at 6pm on Wednesday August 4th to discuss the recent increase in Covid cases in Stanly county and recommendations for gatherings. After discussion the following recommendations were made for our worship and fellowship time together.

We will ask everyone to maintain physical distancing of 6 feet between family units. We recommend that everyone regardless of vaccination status wear a mask during worship and fellowship as well as meetings. We will limit singing and the choir will not wear masks while singing.

I want to thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Please pray for each other and for our ministry.
Have a blessed week and I look forward to seeing you on Sundays.

Peace and Grace
Pastor Ron
