Dear Wesley Church Family,

Twenty months ago, on March 15, 2020, we conducted our last “unrestricted in-church service” at Wesley UMC Baton Rouge. Then we went into a COVID 19 induced lockdown that was supposed to last only two weeks. As you recall, we did initiate restricted in-church services last June, however due to the COVID-19 Delta Variant, that only lasted three weeks. Now, it is almost two years later and thankfully, we have been able to provide continuous on-line streaming broadcasts of our services since then. Those broadcasts have contained selections recorded from our homes and from our church building. Realizing, that some of you have not been to in-person church for over a year, on Sunday November 21st, 2021, it is my privilege to welcome you back to church. We will also include new members that have joined via Facebook Live. It is exciting to begin to move back toward being the “family” that God intends His church to be. It will be so good to once again see those we love, our “family,” the community of faith that is Wesley UMC Baton Rouge.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Warm regards,

Pastor Sweetwyne

Dear Friends in Christ,

As you are probably aware, Governor Edwards lifted the statewide mask mandate and gave the authority to local municipalities, churches, and private businesses to determine how they will handle COVID-19 during gatherings moving forward.

While there is no longer a state-wide mask mandate, this doesn’t mean we are completely free to operate without restrictions.There are still some unvaccinated people, and therefore, the use of masks and the acquisition of COVID 19 Shot(s) is still an important safeguard in preventing the spread of the Corona 19Virus.

With that in mind, here is the policy at Wesley United Methodist Church;

1. All procedures below become effective immediately.
2. All individuals who enter the church, no matter the reason, are required to wear a mask upon entering the church and while inside any part of the church building.
3. Sign-in is required upon entering the church. All individuals who enter the church must sign in (printed name, date, time of entry) at one of the sign-inSanitation Stations.
4. Sanitation stations, with sanitizers, disinfectant, extramasks, additional sanitation supplies and gloves will be located near the church entrance for use by all who enter.Upon exiting the church masks, gloves, etc.should be discarded.
5. Full-capacity seating in worship and classroom spaces will be controlled and space will be allocated prior to service.Specific request from members should be submitted to the church office.
7. Tape will be usedto designate specific seating sections.
8. Use of hymnals, offering plates, and other shared items in worship will be authorized.
9. The size(s) of the choir will be unlimited. The choir will utilize masksand be unmasked only while actually performing.
10. We will resume between-service fellowship and other normal parts of community life.

Our purpose for continuing to wear masks is to provide protection for high-risk people in our church community. We also want people to feel safe coming to worship and to know that we are a church that cares about their health and well-being.

We appreciate your patience and are proud of how our congregation met the challenges associated with COVID-19 so far. Let us all continue to pray and know in our hearts that theseason of this pandemic will be behind us soon.

Yours in Christ,

The Church Administrative Council
