Update from Pastor Steve Stutz

July 30, 2021

 

Hello everyone!

 

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 infection rate in Houston/Harris County has increased dramatically in the past several weeks. Last night, Church Council reviewed our current safety protocols and has recognized the need to re-emphasize our adherence to following them on Sunday mornings. Council will continue to monitor the situation and modify our response as appropriate.

 

We highly recommend that everyone wear a face covering while attending worship or other indoor events on campus.

 

Having given that recommendation, remember, if you are fully vaccinated as defined by the CDC (i.e. two weeks after receiving a second jab of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine) you may choose to come mask-less for worship. However, medical experts have determined that the Delta variant can be spread even by vaccinated people and so they are recommending masks to protect others, to protect unvaccinated children, to protect those who cannot be vaccinated, and so forth. Please factor this into your decision.

 

On the other hand, if for any reason you desire to continue to wear a mask during worship, you are welcome to do so. If you are not vaccinated or only partially vaccinated, we encourage you to continue to wear your mask during worship. However, our ushers and staff are not going to be policing you. No one will be asking at the door if you are vaccinated. You will be on the honor system. Please take this public health issue seriously and do the right thing out of love and concern for those around you.

 

For the time being every other pew will still be roped off for social distancing. Everyone who turns up for an event at Redeemer will need to sign in and provide follow up/contract tracing information. We are not conducting temperature scans at this time, but may do so in the future as cold & flu season arrives. Finally, we encourage everyone who does not have underlying health issues as identified in consultation with their doctor that may prevent them from doing so, to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

 

See you on Sunday!

 

Pr Steve

Recently, the Center for Disease Control lifted mask recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals participating in indoor events. Based on the current science and best practices, our Church Council has updated the ELCR policy for worship and other events on the ELCR campus. Beginning this coming Sunday, May 31, if you are fully vaccinated as defined by the CDC (i.e. two weeks after receiving a second jab of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine) you may choose to come mask-less for worship. On the other hand, if for any reason you desire to continue to wear a mask during worship, you are welcome to do so. If you are not vaccinated or only partially vaccinated, we encourage you to continue to wear your mask during worship. However, our ushers and staff are not going to be policing you. No one will be asking at the door if you are vaccinated. You will be on the honor system. Please take this public health issue seriously and do the right thing out of love and concern for those around you. For the time being every other pew will still be roped off for social distancing. Finally, we encourage everyone who does not have underlying health issues as identified in consultation with their doctor that may prevent them from doing so, to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
