Latest Elder Statement
April 14, 2021
Brothers and Sisters,
The elders want to communicate that we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and ask that each and every one of us remain diligent in our efforts to stay virus-free while at worship services and other church-related functions. Thank you for adhering to the guidelines we have set for the Buford congregation.
Recently, the Governor of Georgia relaxed distancing to 3 1/2 feet, instead of 6 feet, through April 30th. We will continue to tape off every other row in the auditorium and ask you to select seats in the open rows. As more members are returning to in-person services, we will be monitoring the available seating in the auditorium and we have a plan in place to handle overflow. We will continue to offer a mask-only zone in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday AM for Bible class and worship.
In accordance with the current government recommendations, we continue to strongly recommend that masks be worn while entering and exiting the building and at any time or place where it is not possible to social distance from one another. Once you are inside and seated, you can remove your mask if you wish to do so. If you do not desire to wear a mask, please be mindful to keep yourself distanced from those wearing one.
We continue to pray for each of you and are here for you in any way! Especially as you transition back to in-person Bible classes and worship, please let us know of any specific needs, concerns or anxieties so that we can support you during this time. We request your prayers as we continue to make decisions that are best for our congregation and the safety of all.
“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” – Romans 12:12
