Dear Montwood Family:
After thorough discussion, the elders have decided the current data supports our reopening. According to the epstrong website, there has been a precipitous drop for two months in the number of new infections, testing positivity rate, hospitalizations, and ICU patients. As a result, the city has rescinded their orders regarding schools reopening and many of them are, in fact, opening at this time. Furthermore, the most cautious religious group during the pandemic, the Catholic diocese, has now reopened as well. Therefore, we intended to begin in person meetings on Sunday, September 27 using the same protocols and mitigation efforts that were used previously.
We also intend to implement in person Sunday School and Wednesday night meetings beginning the first week of October. Additionally, we want to give urgency to restarting our young adult and youth programs quickly. In keeping with our intentions moving forward, events which take place in the auditorium will continue to be live streamed for those who wish to remain at home.
We look forward to seeing you in person in the near future.
Jim, Lonnie, Demetrius
