The CDC issued new recommendations, encouraging people, whether they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or not, to wear masks in public indoor settings in areas with high rates of disease.
It should be stressed from the onset that vaccines and masks are not related to the measure of one’s faith, nor is it a matter of salvation. While we are called to respect those in authority over us (ROMANS 13:1), ultimately it is an issue of conscience whether or not you choose to receive the vaccine or wear a mask. Opinions vary on this issue, and God calls upon His people, “…do not quarrel over opinions” (ROMANS 14:1)
The CDC recommendation is not a mandate. At present, Texas remains open, and businesses - including churches - are free to decide how to implement mask policies.
The Board of Elders, in discussion with the Pastors, have at this time elected to retain our current “Mask Optional” practices in worship. If those in authority over us require more drastic measures to be in place in the future (ROMANS 13:1), we will revisit our current practices.
We join you in prayer, encouraging ‘safe and smart’ practices and trust that you will use your best judgment on how you and your family want to proceed in public.
In the meantime, may we remain examples of faith and charity, and “…let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but… pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” (ROMANS 14:13,19)

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling."
