We are loved by God the Father who has shown us His love by sending His Son Jesus Christ who offered up His life so we would have everlasting life through faith in Him. Jesus Christ is our help and hope. We desire to be a people that are both, confident of the Lord's call to worship together and loving toward each other as well as our broader community. In gathering for worship we recognize that everyone has a varying sense of caution and therefore everyone should feel free to attend worship as they are comfortable with the health climate and protocols in place. We desire to have guidelines and procedures that both, encourage us to be together and do not unnecessarily discourage the body of Christ from coming together in worship.
With the recent (August 2021) COVID mask mandates for Mecklenburg County and after multiple deliberations with representative views of our church, the Elders and Diaconate of South CLT Pres unanimously offer the following counsel:
In light of the current surge of cases and, moreso, in the spirit of Philippians 2, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others,” the leadership of South CLT Pres recommends that we wear masks at the church facility during worship. If you are in a high-risk category, sick, not feeling well, or have had close contact with a person who has symptoms of COVID-19, please stay at home and worship with us online. We also continue to recommend hand sanitizing. We will revisit these issues as the current situation changes and will consider future surges on a case-by-case basis.
