ON BEHALF OF THE PASTORAL ADVISORY TEAM
As you know, the COVID numbers in the Kansas City Metro have increased. Hospitalizations are up and so are deaths. Tragic, there’s no easy way to say it. There is a growing rate of concern currently and for the projected numbers during the holiday season. Your health spiritually and physically is absolutely important to us, therefore…
We require the wearing of masks or face coverings while in the building on campus.
In compliance with CDC regulations, community governance, and LFSBC’s missional focus for all families. We will temporarily forego 8:45am-Unplugged and 9:30am Sunday school until further notice. Our 10:30 am worship service and Kids Journey will continue with the mask/face cover-wearing.
Together, we believe this is in the best interest of our church-family. The mask policy will remain until further notice. This policy applies to everyone inside the church building, regardless of physical distance. There is no requirement for masks outside a building. If wearing a mask makes you uncomfortable, we encourage you to participate online via YouTube and Facebook until we can attend, safely, unmasked.
We request that masks be properly worn, covering the nose and mouth.
Our mask policy makes it possible to continue with current programming uninterrupted at 10:30am. Each of us are responsible for doing our part to keep each other safe, keep our community safe, and to be good stewards of God’s love. If you feel sick or if you are exposed or quarantined, the entire family should stay home and enjoy online services. Exemptions listed according to City of Lansing, Kansas (11.24.20 Ordinance no 1050-1.pdf, Persons 5 years or younger: persons with medical condition), https://www.lansingks.org/DocumentCenter/View/7169/112420-Ordinance-No-1050
Since we are continuing to have live services, and since masks are not a cure-all for infectious disease proliferation, all those who come on to our church campus accept a certain level of risk in contracting the virus. Our goal in taking these measures, along with other sanitation and safety precautions, is to limit the risk of that happening when you attend church. Thank you for your understanding and for doing your part.
Matthew 6:33-34, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
We have hope in our seeking because Christ is King over any and every obstacle we face.
I’m honored to be your Pastor,
