The Session approved a motion that should the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention upgrade or downgrade its weekly covid-19 community level rating for Howard County, CMPC will automatically adhere to the CDC’s accompanying guidance on wearing masks. A mask mandate will be instituted in the building when our community level is rated as high; conversely, the mandate will be dropped when our community level is rated as medium or low.
The congregation will be immediately notified by email whenever a change to the church’s mask policy occurs, and the church’s website and signage will be adjusted as needed.

- The Session approved a motion from the Christian Education Committee on behalf of Boy Scout Troop 75 to allow them to start a troop for girls in response to input from Scout leaders and parents. Troop 75 will become Troop 75B for boys and Troop 75G for girls. Each troop will have its own scoutmaster and meet separately on the same night at CMPC to permit them to share resources.
