The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is working with state and local public health officials to monitor the spread of Omicron. As of December 20, 2021, Omicron has been detected in most states and territories and is rapidly increasing the proportion of COVID-19 cases.
The Omicron variant likely will spread more easily than the original SARS-CoV-2 virus and how easily Omicron spreads compared to Delta remains unknown. CDC expects that anyone with Omicron infection can spread the virus to others, even if they are vaccinated or don’t have symptoms.
Current vaccines are expected to protect against severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths due to infection with the Omicron variant. However, breakthrough infections in people who are fully vaccinated are likely to occur. With other variants, like Delta, vaccines have remained effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. The recent emergence of Omicron further emphasizes the importance of vaccination and boosters.
Vaccines remain the best public health measure to protect people from COVID-19, slow transmission, and reduce the likelihood of new variants emerging.
The CDC continues to recommend wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission, regardless of vaccination status.
In light of this, Metropolitan Church leaders have, once again, made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend in-person assemblies until further notice. This decision was made in the best interest of the overall congregation, guided by an over- abundance of caution and with the best interest of our most vulnerable members in mind.
Protocol for collection of offering and distribution of communion will be the same as was done during previous closures.
Communion and offering collection services will be available at the church building on Saturdays from 11am-1pm.
Measures will be taken to enhance safety, minimize contact and utilize social distancing.
Enter through the north parking lot (near the kitchen door).
We are and ask that you be committed, constant and confident in prayer that our Lord will see us safely through this time and help us resume regular activities, the most important of which is praising His holy name.
A Sunday morning sermon will be presented via Uber Conference. This is the same format as our Wednesday bible study. Just dial in at 10:20am on Sunday morning to join us. 817-541-9041
Peace and blessings, MPCC leadership
