Covid Response Update
UPDATED: Friday, Sept 24, 2021
The Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners recently approved and revised an ordinance that now requires that all establishments, including churches, require persons to wear face coverings when indoors. This ordinance went into effect on Wednesday, September 22nd.
We maintain the same convictions we have had throughout the entire pandemic in response to previous federal, state, and local mandates.
Journey Church encourages all partners and attendees to respect and honor government directives within the confines of their convictions/conscience. (Romans 13)
The staff and leadership of Journey church will not be tasked with "policing" or enforcing this ordinance in our facility. I do not believe it is Constitutional or Biblical for church leadership to act as enforcement agents for governmental policies.
This is NOT a Journey church mandate, it IS a matter of compliance with our local government regulations. This means you are individually responsible and own the consequences of how you choose to respond to this county ordinance.
We will continue to corporately gather in-person and online at 10am on Sunday mornings. If you or anyone in your family is showing symptoms of Covid-19, please take appropriate steps for your safety and the safety of others.
Above all, we ARE MANDATED (by Scripture) to exercise love, peace, and compassion toward one another as we preserve UNITY in the church. Romans 12:18 calls us to "do all that you can to live in peace with everyone." Please do not allow your personal, social, or political ideologies to sow division and discord in your heart OR in our church!
I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday!
