The Session of the Presbyterian Church at Woodbury celebrates the gift of safe, effective vaccines, and we are encouraged by the recently revised CDC recommendations which further assert their efficacy. At the same time, we are aware that some in our community are not able to receive the vaccine because of age or other health issues, and that some immunocompromised individuals who have received the vaccine are still at higher risk of infection and serious illness. Because we seek to be a community that is inclusive, hospitable, and safe for all people, we will continue to require the proper use of masks for all individuals over the age of 2, unless medically contraindicated.

In Christ,
Rev. Dr. Philip W. Oehler, Sr.
Minister of Word & Sacrament
