COVID Update – April 2021

I would like to take a moment to update you, on behalf of the elders, regarding our approach to COVID. There have been court decisions, political maneuvers, cowardly censorship, obfuscation by the CDC, and of course, more media spin. But for us, in short, nothing’s changed.

You may have heard that Grace Community Church (GCC), pastored by John MacArthur, has disregarded the government’s lockdown orders. And you may remember that I disagreed with one basic foundation of their decision, in my video on civil disobedience. That disagreement still stands.
