Dear CROSSROADS Family,
First, thank you very much for your wonderful perseverance with and adherence to our CROSSROADS guidelines, as well as your grace with each other, during this long winter of the coronavirus pandemic. This has felt like a long winter, but we are grateful to be nearing the end of this journey and enjoying the spring and summer that have arrived. As many are aware, due to the significant improvement in the statistics, etc., the CDC (as well as most states) has issued new guidance around masks and distancing. In response, CROSSROADS is updating its own guidelines as presented below.
Revised CROSSROAD Guidelines for Masks and Distancing: With vaccination options now universally available, effective May 24, 2021 CROSSROADS will no longer require facial coverings at its physical sites in Lakeville or Inver Grove Heights for worship or small group gatherings. Anyone who feels vulnerable for any reason should feel comfortable in still wearing a mask. The church expects our community to be sensitive to persons who may request that others wear a mask when interacting closely with them. CROSSROADS CHURCH is committed to respecting the private and personal health choices of all of our employees and church members.
In addition, beginning this summer CROSSROADS will also transition all of its public spaces (e.g., classrooms, lobby, and worship center) back to more standard seating arrangements. Thank you in advance for continuing to extend grace to each other as we move into a new season together.
Pastor Paul Marzahn
