LHBC SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

August 25, 2021

The Washington State Department of Health in concert  with Governor Inslee has issued an Order 20-03.4  (official mandate:) that requires masks to be worn indoors at all public places (with some exceptions such as those leading religious services or have respiratory issues) including churches effective 8/23/21 until further notice. Your Elders have prayed and discussed at length as to the proper response to this Order and are in hopes that we all, as a unified body, keep our focus on Christ and remember that it is our Sovereign God who is in control. Accordingly Elders, in compliance to the Order and most importantly in obedience to Scripture Romans 13:1-5 and 1Peter 2:11-17, will be requiring masks to be worn indoors with the exceptions listed in the Order. Future Orders and Mandates will be prayerfully evaluated for compliance by Elders as they are issued. Again, your Elders have prayed through this decision, have been diligent with evaluating how to respond, and pray that you will understand, remain in unity, and be patient with this inconvenience.”
