Mt. Olive update on Mask Policy in response to the state mask mandate being lifted in April 4/1/2021

Mt. Olive UMC will continue to require masks in worship.
We are aware that the mask mandate in Indiana is being lifted April 6th.  However, infection numbers continue to rise in Indiana.  
Furthermore our local schools, healthcare facilities, and providers are continuing to mandate masks.

To honor their efforts and in line with the CDC guidelines we will continue to exercise caution and mandate masks.  This policy will be reviewed again June 30th.  

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we seek to first do no harm, do good, and stay in love with God! The three simple rules of the Christian life laid out by our founder John Wesley.
