April 18, 2021:
In lieu of the Indiana governor lifting the state-wide mask mandate a couple of weeks ago, the Berne Evangelical Church will now follow in the same manner. Beginning on Sunday, April 18th, there will no longer be specific instructions for mask-wearing and/or social distancing during our services and events. While we are going in this direction we do understand that the COVID battle is not completely over. For those of you that still have individual health concerns, it is welcome and encouraged that you feel comfortable to continue wearing a mask and/or trying to sit with social distancing protocols. We do ask as a congregation that you continue to appreciate and recognize individuals that may fall into the "high-risk" categories or have COVID concerns at their schools or places of business. We sincerely thank all of you for your support and consideration for this situation over the past year of concern.
The BEC Deacon Board.
