In response to the rapidly spreading Delta variant of COVID-19, churches across the state are reassessing their fall ministry plans. Many congregations are choosing to re-instate universal masking, go back outdoors, or go back online. The latest Returning to Church supplement created by our sister organization, the Wisconsin Council of Churches,
MCC Board members, volunteer advocates, members of the Public Policy Committee, and our Executive Director have been testifying, writing editorials and letters to editors, and collaborating with our twelve partner organizations to be sure that the voice of faith is heard in the halls of the State House.
We have posted copies of written testimony on our website. Follow the link if your are interested in viewing http://mainecouncilofchurches.org/legislative-priorities/
