Proposal for Greater Fellowship Baptist Church: Return to In-Person Worship
As of 5/14/21, the state of NC has administered over 7.7 million vaccine doses. 51% percent of those 18 and up are at least partially vaccinated, and 46% percent of those 18 and up have been fully vaccinated.
Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that fully vaccinated individuals can safely do most activities without wearing a mask or the need to social distance from others, the state removed its indoor mask mandate for most settings. Additionally, the state lifted all mass gathering limits and social distancing requirements. These changes went into effect at 1:30 PM on 5/14/21.
Masks will still be required in childcare, schools and camps as most children are either not yet vaccinated or are not yet eligible to be vaccinated. Everyone, including people who are fully vaccinated will still be required to wear a mask in certain settings such as public transportation, health care settings like hospitals, doctor’s offices and long-term care settings like nursing homes, and certain congregate settings like correctional facilities and homeless shelters.

We are eager to return to worship and are excited to partner with you in this launch of New Dimensions. As you saw on the video above, New Dimensions is our re-entry plan to return to in-person worship in the sanctuary. While this plan is multi-faceted to include necessary upgrades to the sanctuary, I want you to know that our Deacons and Trustees have vetted several different quotes from audio and video companies to narrow down the company that will provide the most effective and affordable equipment and installation for the required upgrades. The updated equipment will allow us to maintain continuity with our online audience and those who will feel comfortable returning to in-person worship. The upgrade will include:
