Since the arrival of COVID-19, Morning Star has chosen to operate according to the regulations and practices set forth by our state and local governments. It is important for Morning Star to honor our governing leaders. So far, the officials have not asked us to do anything that contradicts our faith in our Lord Jesus.
As of Wednesday, July 22, Governor DeWine stated that masks are mandatory to wear with only a few exceptions. Therefore, Morning Star worship services will adhere to the governor’s mandate. This begins Sunday, July 26 — the exception is for those with medical issues that are exacerbated by wearing a mask.
This will also be true for ministries that meet at Morning Star. If the meeting is in the building, then the participants must wear masks. For meetings outside of the building, masks are required if participants are less than six feet apart.
We agree that COVID-19 is a real virus. There are vulnerable individuals within our social circles. Therefore, we need to move forward with prayerful caution. It is important to heed the words of the Apostle Paul,
“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.” (Philippians 1:27).
He also wrote,
“… in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interest but each of you to the interests of others.”(Philippians 2:3-4).
Walking worthy includes demonstrating grace and mercy to those around you.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will forgo greeting each other with a holy kiss at this time!
