8:30 AM Traditional Worship Service and 10:45 AM Praise Worship Service
Recent “COVID numbers” across Georgia and including Cherokee, Cobb and other surrounding counties have dropped considerably. Per the CDC and Prevention and the GA Department of Public Health tracking websites, numbers of new cases, Percent Positivity and COVID-19-Associated Hospitalizations have decreased dramatically and continue to trend down. As such, the GSLC Congregation Council and COVID Task Force are in agreement to relax our current mask mandate while indoors at Good Shepherd. The wearing of masks is not required, but is highly recommended.
