As a result of the mask mandate being lifted in the State of Maryland, masks and social distancing will no longer be required at New Design Church for worship services or any other meetings/ministries.
With this change we encourage the following:
- If you feel more comfortable continuing to wear a mask, we encourage you to do so.
- If you are not comfortable worshiping in person at this time, we support and encourage you to worship with us online.
As always, the most important thing is worshiping and experiencing the presence of God! As we move into yet another new season of worshiping together we strongly urge you to abide by the following:
People are encouraged to do what they feel is most comfortable for them and are welcome without question to worship at New Design. We expect people to respect differing opinions and to continue to come together for our common purpose, which is to worship our Lord.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. – Ephesians 4:2-3
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
– Romans 12:9-12
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. – Colossians 3:15-17
If you have any questions, members of NDC governing board are available. Looking forward to worshiping with you Sunday!
