Personal Faith Affirmation

To Whom It May Concern:
The pastors and elders of Evangelical Reformed Church are writing on the behalf of ____________________ to confirm that his/her sincerely held religious beliefs prevent him/her from receiving a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination. Our church, for ourselves and our congregants, affirms our right to invoke religious exemption against mandatory vaccination by governmental authorities and/or employers.
____________________ application for religious exemption is, therefore, not merely a matter of personal opinion or philosophy, but is a bona fide sincere religious conviction with the support of their church. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
On behalf of the Elders of Evangelical Reformed Church,
Rich Hamlin
Senior Pastor
