PRE-CAUTION REGARDING OPENING
As the government plans to reopen, they are taking all the precautionary measures and have advised that we must be well-positioned to follow public health advice and workplace safety measures. As pastors and leaders, we are not only called to feed the sheep but we are also called to protect the sheep. Therefore, it is wise for us to have the protocols documented, resources trained, equipped, and available to implement the health and safety measures necessary to facilitate re-opening. If you are not well-positioned to re-open, you will be in breach of the government's requirement and will be putting people at risk. Please adhere to every precaution. The health and well-being of all our members and visitors are our foremost concern and is our number one priority at this time. We do not want to have COVID-19 breakout in any of our congregations.
