From Bishop Shelley Bryan Wee

  • It is important for us to be mindful that public health experts warn us that the nature of the virus has not changed; it is still highly contagious and our communities are still vulnerable. 
  • Our priority is protecting the well-being, health and safety of ALL members of our Synod.  
  • We continue to urge that church buildings remain closed to all but essential staff for as long as in-person, indoor gatherings remain high risk. 
  • If your congregation chooses to gather in person, good protocols must be in place so that all are protected.
