Dear New Life Members and Friends,
As you know, the rate of new Covid-19 cases has increased markedly in recent days. The Centers for Disease Control has identified Florida as an "area of high transmission". Those who have not yet been vaccinated are at very high risk of contracting the Covid-19 "Delta variant", which is hospitalizing thousands of people state-wide.
The CDC has issued updated mask guidelines, calling for the wearing of masks by both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons when in public indoor settings.
As a result, in an abundance of caution, we will transition to parking lot only services until the rate subsides and the CDC relaxes these updated guidelines.
We will certainly miss being indoors together, but we want to ensure that no one is placed in harms way during worship. Remember "...weeping may endure for a night, but joy will come in the morning" Psalm 30:5.
You can certainly bring your lawn chairs and sit outside your cars. We ask that you socially distance and wear a mask if less than 6 feet away from a non-family member.
Friends, we can make it through this valley with God as our light and protection. I am thankful for your continued fellowship and support. I will look for you Sunday!!
Please contact the church if you have any questions or concerns - you may reply to this email as well.
Now, may God continue to both bless and protect you,
Pastor Lamont A. Hogans and New Life Leaders
