Baltimore County re-instated the indoor mask mandate amid rising Covid cases. The mandates went into effect on December 29th and applies to houses of worship, along with other establishments that serve the public.
Therefore, beginning with January 2, 2022 worship, everyone ages 5 and older must be mased to enter the church building. Masks must remain in place while you are inside, and we will continue to check in at the desk, as well as being more aware of social distancing ourselves from one another.
Thank you for following these precautions.
We can worship safely, and we will! Zoom will continue and our doors are open for those who wish to worship in person.
Pastor Message for the week:
We want to grow in knowledge and action.
In this week’s focus scripture, we continue the story from last week. Jesus has begun to achieve notoriety in his ministry. Word about him has spread. He has stood up in the midst of a worship service and help the rapt attention of all in attendance as he proclaimed a message of hope and liberation. He has declared the good news and the fulfillment of the long-held promise of the prophecy of Isaiah. The listeners are stunned…momentarily. Something happens and the mood and reception of the worshippers turns. Awe shifts to anger as those with ears to hear reject their first exposure to the embodied gospel.
After all, good news for all is often perceived as bad news for those who cling to their privilege. We need to strive for knowledge and action.
To know is one thing…to do, an entirely different thing.
Wear a mask and join us!
Peace and joy,
