Beacon Responds to New Requirement to Wear Masks

We are so grateful that we are able to meet together publically for worship.  As we meet we are doing our best to be a public testimony to our obedience to God’s Word found in Romans 13:1, 2 Pet. 2:13.  We pray that all of us will do whatever we can to “maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace,” as we walk together through these times. The elders are keeping a close watch on government developments but for the time being, we have chosen to continue to meet as we have been meeting.  We continue public worship with the following measures in place accordingly. 

  • Thermometer check as per CDC guidelines as a pre-screening
  • Entry will be through the glass double doors only – we should not exit from those doors
  • Exit will be through the stage door after worship if in the worship
  • Exit will be through the side door down Nursery hallway if leaving worship from the lobby
  • Families may sit together in lobby or in worship center
  • As of July 25 all of Minnesota is mandated to wear masks from 6 years old and up; therefore we would ask Beacon of Hope to “Mask Up”
  • Nursery workers and children 5 and under are exempt from wearing masks
  • There are other medical exemptions (pregnant women, those with asthma, pre-existing conditions, etc.)

We are not an undiscerning congregation, nor are we passively or automatically complying with government orders – we, as your leaders, just do not see the requests by the Governor to be preventing us from speaking or preaching at all in the name of Jesus (Acts 4:18).  Until that time we will gratefully continue to meet for worship with a hearts filled with joy and we will avoid complaining or grumbling at this momentary, light inconvenience.  May we all “be diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace!”

Yours for the Gospel,

Pastor Steve for the elders
