FBCL COVID Update 2021 10-29

Hello First Baptist Luling,

This is your pastor, Jerry Stevens. We have new information about our COVID protocols.

As a result of continuing improving numbers related to the recent Delta surge across our state, governor John Bel Edwards announced yesterday that he has lifted the statewide mask mandates for the state of Louisiana, beginning today, Wednesday, October 27. In a related move, mayor Latoya Cantrell is lifting mask mandates for the city of New Orleans this coming Friday, October 29.

We have been so grateful for your cooperation with our COVID protocols. Our compliance and the increasing numbers of vaccinated individuals has helped us avoid an outbreak of the COVID virus for our church congregation. Thank you so much for your faithful cooperation.

As a result of these proclamations, we are dropping a mask mandate for our church meetings beginning immediately, which means this coming Sunday will be our first Sunday to worship without a mask mandate since I have been your pastor.

So, when I say “Look forward to seeing you this Sunday!” I really mean, “Look forward to seeing you this Sunday!”

May God bless you richly.

Dr. Gerald L. Stevens
