Covid-19 Update January 5, 2021

People are beginning to be vaccinated but we are still in the most dangerous season for this pandemic. Today there are 2,254 active cases in Bell County and hospitalizations are at their highest levels-exceeding 15% for the first time. As most of our congregation continues to live-stream, we have plenty of room for family units to space 6 feet apart in our 10:30 service as they feel led to attend, so we are discontinuing our 8:00 service for now. Depending on the rate of vaccination among those 65+ we many not need to reinstate it. We continue to offer in-person Bible Studies at 9:15 and Worship at 10:30. With schools beginning, we continue to offer Awana at 4:30. Wednesday evenings we have supper at 5:15 and Bible study in the Parlor at 6:00 along with children activities at 6:00 and youth at 6:30.

Vaccinations-while no one can know for certain about any long-term risks from the Virus or the new vaccinations, all scientific results from the vaccinations from Pfizer and Moderno indicate they are highly effective (95%) and have low risk of major side-effects. The side-effects tend to be similar to other vaccines as your body's immune system responds. These COVID vaccinations have had less side-effects than many other vaccinations. With God's help, we have in the past eradicated such dread diseases as polio and small-pox through the use of vaccines. May God give us victory over COVID-19. Note that our competitors such as China and Russia who are also manufacturing vaccines, will seek to distort in social media any concerns about these vaccines from the USA, UK, and Germany.

With vaccination as with in-person Church attendance, be informed, pray it through, and obey what God tells you to do.

In Christ,

Pastor Ron
