3-4-21 FUMC Gathering Updates

With the more spring-like temperatures upon us, and Easter now just 4 weeks away I’m sure we all have a sense of HOPE that God is making all things new!  COVID vaccines are up, cases are down and we can’t wait to be back in church together again!
 
While Governor Abbot has opened all businesses to 100% and removed the mask mandates, my parents had an expression … JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN, DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD!  Yes, people have to be responsible for their own behaviors but we also have to be mindful to take care of each other!  Remember .. not everyone has had vaccines or has antibodies. 
 
We ALL want to get back to 100% as soon as we can and we will be considering how to start bringing things back incrementally – so please be patient.  We have already loosened the mask mandate so you only have to wear masks in and out of the buildings or when walking around and talking to people.  We will still disinfect hands and maintain social distancing but over the next few weeks we hope to see more and more things change.
 
Attached (CLICK HERE) is a letter from Bishop Mike McKee suggesting we not rush back to “normal”. He says”for the time being – continue doing what you have been doing as we all remain committed to “do no harm.” 
 
Please continue to PRAY, PRAY, PRAY that things get BETTER and BETTER and BETTER!

As you know, the COVID cases in our community are rising rapidly and expected to continue to rise as this new, more infectious strain starts to spread. (NET Health updates.) Net Health has a page that explains who is ELIGIBLE to get the vaccine and you can also get on a vaccine waiting list there also … CLICK HERE.  We are fortunate to have a public health agency that serves our county!

Looking for where to find the COVID vaccine? The Texas Division of Emergency Management updates a vaccine map daily indicating exactly where vaccines have been distributed and which vaccines they have. As you can imagine, the vaccines are being used in QUICK-TIME so be ready to go and be diligent in continuing to check the map. Click the OK button in the lower right corner to get to the map.
