Good day siblings in Christ,
For those who did not see the press conference yesterday, Gov. Cuomo has lifted the mask requirements in the state. After an email discussion with the council, we too have decided that masks will be optional both outdoors and indoors. We encourage the use of masks, especially indoors and for those who have not gotten the vaccine.
We will continue to head outside for safety reasons when the weather permits throughout the summer. Many who have attended say that they enjoy worship outside with the birds as our choir. It really is a peaceful and tranquil setting. We are again expecting beautiful weather on Sunday this week.
We will continue to offer worship online as an option. In the future, we may look at which type of online offerings we have, but for the time being Zoom and Facebook will still be our offerings.
Once again, we are asking you to write to your congressperson on behalf of Bread for the World. It just takes a few minutes, but it helps keep the focus on funding hunger programs. The link is https://www.bread.org/write-congress.
