Update: Masks Expected at Corporate Gatherings

Dear Cedar Rock church family,

In recent months, we’ve tiptoed back to some sense of normalcy. Yet, sadly, COVID has not gone away. In fact, the virus is more widespread than ever. Case numbers are surging to all-time highs, and the daily death-toll marches upward in NC. Add in the flu, and we have a cocktail for disaster especially for the most vulnerable.

We desire to continue to worship in our sanctuary. Most of all, we want our worship gatherings to be safe for all of our Cedar Rock family — including (and especially) the most vulnerable.

As a result, your deacons unanimously decided to make mask-wearing the expectation for our corporate gatherings.

This expectation is born out of an abundance of love for you. We want all of our Cedar Rock family to be healthy and safe in our worship gatherings — especially the most vulnerable among us.

We recognize that there are a variety of opinions about masks. You may not feel like you need one for your own health. Even so, we urge you to do so for the health and safety of your brothers and sisters. After all, this is what our study of 1 John has urged us to do: to sacrificially put our brothers’ needs and concerns before our own.

“By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.” (1 John 3:16)

We love you dearly and look forward to worship on Sunday!

In love,

Pastor Nathaniel
