Lens of the Future August 11, 2021

The Lens of the Future committee is carefully watching as the active levels of Covid cases in the state and around the country rise. While Iowa rates of infection have not risen as fast as in other areas, Polk Co and the state are reporting significantly higher rates. Various options have been considered, but at this time we remain at Level 3. This allows for unlimited size outdoor meetings. Indoor gatherings are limited to 20 persons, except that up to 50 people may be in the church at any one time. Masks must be worn by everyone participating in indoor gatherings.

We continue to encourage everyone who can to be vaccinated as soon as possible. We expect each person to do their part to protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated, wearing a mask when recommended, and taking other precautions. We know that the entire congregation is eager to get back together again and the LENS committee is working hard to prepare for that time. We welcome thoughts and ideas from the everyone. Please feel free to contact anyone on the LENS committee with your questions and suggestions.
