Dear DRBC Family and Guests,
Romans 14:19 says, “So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” This is the appropriate approach to our life together at DRBC for the glory of God. Regarding the COVID safety protocol at DRBC, we have sought to follow this by both considering the health factor (as informed by the government) as well as to seek to have as many of us involved in church life as possible, given the wide variety of opinions on how to approach the COVID situation.
We want to continue to pursue obedience to Romans 14:19. The DRBC Safety Team met recently and has concluded that the best way to do this currently is reflected in the following protocol to take effect immediately . . . .
*We will have a section in the Sanctuary where masks are required. It will be in the back opposite the sound booth. Also, the Fellowship Hall will be available as a “masks required” area to accommodate anyone who prefers not to be in the Sanctuary with others who are not wearing masks.
*We recommend physical distancing between household groups, but we do not require face coverings in the Sanctuary. This means that each person is responsible for his/her own safety, including the decision to attend and where to sit.
*We want as many as possible to assemble together physically in the worship center. We believe that this protocol best achieves that goal.
*Please respect the preferences of others when it comes to greetings.
*Please wash your hands/sanitize frequently.
*Please do not attend if you are sick.
We recognize that there is a wide variety of opinions on this issue. We also recognize that the issue has been politicized in our society. As Christians, however, we simply desire to glorify God through the edification (building up) of the members of the Body of Christ. May this safety protocol lead to peace and mutual upbuilding in our congregation.
