TLC COVID Update
As COVID cases in the area continue to rise, we, the Council, are recommending that masks be worn
during indoor gatherings at the church starting immediately until further notice.
The Council is hopeful that this decision is viewed from a place of care and love for each other -
for those who cannot protect themselves, for those under 12 who cannot receive a vaccine,
for those with health challenges that are known and unknown.
Let us show our love and care for all our neighbors.
