WHAT NOW?

Many of our members are vaccinated.
Many of our churches are meeting in-person again.

And yet…
Not everyone is vaccinated.
COVID infections are continuing to rise.
The Delta variant is spreading around the world.

Mask mandates were lifted in many places
And are now being reinstated.

So, WHAT NOW for our churches?
Do we mandate masks?
Do we require proof of vaccination?
Do we limit in-person attendance with greater social distance?
Do we go online only again?

How do our decisions reflect our theology and values?
How do we live out our mission in this era?

Let’s talk about all these questions in a supportive, no judgment zone.
5th August, 3pm EDT / 11pm GMT on ZOOM.

MCC is a diverse community. Our geographic locations, cultures, and politics impact our decisions as well as our theologies and approaches to ministry. While we are in this same storm of COVID, we are in different boats. Recognizing this diversity, we invite you to be present with one another – the questions and decisions – the doubts and concerns – with deep respect for each other’s ministry.

Listening with heart and head may help inform your next decisions – what you want to do and what you will not do AND WHY!

The storm clouds of COVID may have appeared to be clearing, however, there is another wave already impacting our world.

So, WHAT NOW?
How will you BE CHURCH in this unpredictable time?

Plan to attend this facilitated conversation
about how COVID is continuing to impact Church Life.
