Masks OK, But Not Required

A Message From Pastor Josette Franklin


 The peace of Christ be with you all.


As COVID-19 transmissions have very recently been recorded as low, we have eased the mask requirements for in-person worship services at our churches. 


We will continue to practice social distancing and reduced sanctuary capacity as needed.  Everyone attending worship services on Sunday is asked to respect the space of others.


If you have been fully vaccinated and/or boosted you may attend Sunday worship services without a mask if you wish. However, people may choose to mask at any time and must be respected and allowed to do so at any time. Please do not tell anyone to take their mask off. Let us be courteous to one another.


People who have not been fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. However, we will not require you to wear a mask to attend in-person worship services. 


People who have COVID-19 symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 are asked to please love your neighbor and do no harm and refrain from attending in-person worship services, meetings and other church events. Please wear a mask if you must go out. Here is the link for transmission updates for your convenience.


Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and support for the ministry of the Greenwood-Laurel Park UMC Charge. And we are praying we will see you online or in the building on Sunday!
