Dear Church Family,                                                                                                                                                                                 May 13, 2021


By now many of you are aware of the CDC’s latest recommendations regarding COVID 19 protocols on the wearing of masks by people who are fully vaccinated https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html. In truth, we have been watching the pandemic’s improving statistics and were planning to announce that we would be adjusting our protocols on the church campus at the beginning of June. Knowing that the majority of our church members are fully vaccinated, and in light of the CDC’s current recommendations, effective immediately, the campus of Lakewood UMC is mask optional. For those who have yet to be vaccinated, we strongly recommend continuing to wear masks until you are two weeks out from your second shot. Please know, if you prefer to continue wearing a mask while on campus you are free to do so and will have our support. We will continue to live-stream our 9:30 Traditional and 10:50 New Song Services.  


It has been a long year. Let’s get together Sunday and celebrate!!  


Peace, 


Your Pastors
