Hey Church at the Gates Middle Schoolers!
As COVID-19 cases in Missoula County have slowly begun to decrease the Missoula County Board of Health has voted to change some of the current restrictions. This vote took place on February 18th and we wanted to briefly update you on what this means for middle school 4:12 going forward.
Some positive changes.
The primary change is that indoor event group sizes have changed from 25 to 50 (like we were this last summer). For the last few months, we’ve had two separate groups meeting on Wednesday nights in order to remain under the 25 person limit. Now that the limit is increased, we believe it is in the best interest of our student group to go back to meeting all together.
- Students will all be able to see one another instead of being split by age.
- Our leaders will be able to spend more quality time with students instead of leading extra activities for two separate groups.
Although we are moving in the right direction, the county-wide mask mandate is still in place. We know it is nobody’s favorite thing to do but we are still asking students to wear masks to 4:12 on Wednesdays except during active games and snack. All of our students have done a tremendous job with this already this year and we are thankful that they have not allowed that ruin their fun while here.
I hope this information allows you to decide what is best for you and your family at this time. We look forward to seeing your student at 4:12, now or in the future!
Please do not hesitate to contact Mark Resch at the church with any questions or concerns.
