Dear SAC Family,
An update for our Saturday Evening Service:
I am thankful and grateful that today the US Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that Governors (at least in NY) do not have the power or authority to limit the size or capacity of churches. This country continues to uphold the freedom of religion and no earthly authority has dominion over the Bride of Christ. With that being said, our authority is Christ, God's Word, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Philippians 2:3 states - we are "in humility, to consider others more important than ourselves".
I, along with the Elders, would like our Sat evening service to become more of a safe place for people who need or desire that. We would like it to become "mask friendly". We are not in any way requiring, mandating it, and neither are we following a government order, we are simply showing our love for our people by strongly encouraging some physical distancing, wearing of protective equipment, and disinfecting/cleaning as much as possible. We are recognizing and caring for those who need this for whatever their reason. Some of our family work in hospitals, schools, businesses, etc. and some of our family have issues that prevent them from coming to a place where they do not feel safe.
So, if you plan on attending our Sat Evening Service please consider this. There will be no one standing at the door monitoring it, we simply trust that this family will love one another as Christ has loved you and gave Himself up for you. Thank you family, and those who need this also thank you.
