Grace and peace!
By now you know that our governor has lifted mask mandates for indoor activities beginning February 10th. I am sure this is good news for many of us who are pandemic-weary.
Please know that the governor’s decision will NOT affect our safety processes at the United Methodist Church of Babylon. Wearing masks will continue to be necessary inside of our physical plant, including at worship, at choir rehearsal, at meetings, and in the administrative offices.
This decision is based upon a deep desire to care for the safety and well-being of the most vulnerable among us and is consistent with the guidance of our Bishop. “So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
I look forward to greeting you on Sunday morning.
In Christ’s love,
