Updated Mask Guidelines

As we approach our annual conference meeting we are regularly checking the CDC guidelines.  Last week the CDC recommended that people wear masks indoors in Polk County due to the current level of transmission. In light of this, we are recommending that all persons wear masks during our annual conference event. Please plan to wear a mask when you are indoors. By wearing masks, we honor the body that is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). And in the body, we are connected. This is social holiness. This is the connection of the people called Methodist. The health of the body, the church, is the health of each member. We seek to strengthen one another. In the body of Christ, we need each other (1 Corinthians 12:21). If you have any questions about this recommendation, you may email ashanks@flumc.org.
