Lincoln Christian Fellowship


Hey church family,

I hope you've had a chance to listen to - and wrestle with - this last Sunday's study through Roman's 13 + 14. If you haven't yet, please do so with a humble heart and an open bible, especially if the following change at LCF seems at first unwarranted, motivated by fear, or morally irresponsible.

I, along with the entire Board of Elders and the rest of our leadership team, request that you wear a facemask when you come to hear God's Word and worship with us at LCF.
We will not be enforcing mask compliance or removing mask-less worshippers.
We seek to win you to our perspective through both the clear teaching of God's Word and by being an example to you of those who are personally willing to lovingly yield a liberty in order to prevent unnecessary division in the church, undue conflict with those outside the church, and stop the long term isolation of brothers or sisters who can't in good conscience gather at large unmasked gatherings.

Paul taught us this in 1 Cor. 9:19-23: "Though I am free, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; I became like a Jew to win Jews, like a Greek to win Greeks, I became weak to win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. Now this I do for the Gospel's sake..."
This mask issue just isn't the hill we want to die on. It is, however, a great opportunity to go the extra mile with both believer and unbeliever alike (Matt. 5:39-42)

We understand that some of you may strongly disagree with our perspective and request. Please, if you're struggling with this, seek out one of our elders (Andrew Jipson, Perry York, Glenn Mclellan, Al Whitney) or reach out to me at the church personally. We would love to talk to you about it!

We will still be gathering Thursday night at 6 PM for our midweek service. Hope you can make it!

- Pastor Sam
