Over the course of the pandemic, there has been much confusion in the church about gathering together for worship. Some churches continue to gather in-person. Other churches have been “re-imagining themselves”. Many pastors have slipped into using the word “together” in reference to pre-recorded videos or virtual meetings. Still others are advocating that gathering in-person is not “essential”. As the government begins to use our confused behavior against us, the time for clarity is now.
Simply put, public worship is a non-negotiable principle. Beyond science, and every natural reason we can give, we ultimately bow the knee and pledge our lives to King Jesus who is the Head of the Church and our only Sovereign.
We encourage you to read and sign the following declaration.* Our hope is to have strength in numbers as we interact with our governing officials. If you sign, we will contact you about such matters.
