COVID Health & Safety Update - March 5, 2022
GOOD NEWS! Your vestry has met and voted by e-mail on a safety update: for now face coverings are no longer required of everyone indoors at CGSE. If you are at a high risk for contracting COVID or for spreading it, we encourage you to wear a mask to protect yourself and our community. Anyone is welcome to wear a mask no matter what. Let’s take care of each other like we always have done.
Read the vestry's full set of updated safety protocols here . . .
See you in church!
The CDC changed its mask guidelines - under which we've been operating - on Feb. 25. It took a week to see the benefit in Newton County, but as of March 3 our county has dropped out of the "High Community Level" category, so indoor masking for all is no longer the guideline.

Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘...you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’
The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
There is no other commandment greater than these.”
News From Rio
Our sister church in Rio, St. Luke's Episcopal, often sends a fuller set prayer requests than what we're able to include on Sunday mornings (the sick, bereaved, etc.) For a full update from St. Luke's, please see the most recent communication for prayer needs.
