It has been great to see more and more people returning to church. Even though we are continuing to follow AMC Theatres' policies about wearing a mask until seated (even for those fully vaccinated), the recent announcement from the CDC and NY is an encouragement that things are getting back to normal. Not only has our church attendance picked up, we are also seeing many more visitors.
While there are still a lot of people who are waiting a little longer to return to church, it's great to see this recent shift in people feeling more comfortable. At the height of the pandemic, there were a lot of news articles asking questions like, "Will people ever return to movie theaters again?" Now we can see that the answer is clearly, "Yes." People are also comfortable coming to church in a movie theater as well.
