The Session has been in prayer and discussion over the pandemic resurgence in our local area, and how best to respond. WRPC is a congregation whose mission is first and foremost to Love God and Love One Another, as our Savior taught us. With humility, to do all we can to protect the most vulnerable in our community, WRPC will be returning to virtual worship services only through Sunday, Sept. 19. At that time, the Session will reassess the local data and CDC guidance. During this period masks will be required in the Church building during the week, and for those recording the virtual services on Sunday, with the exception of individuals speaking at the pulpit. These actions are consistent with previous actions we have taken during times of high community spread.
We don’t take these actions lightly, and are praying fervently that this is a temporary situation. Please be in prayer for our church, our community, for our health care workers, and all who are being impacted by the pandemic.
