COVID-19 Religious Exemption Letter

Cornerstone Chapel does not have an official stance on the COVID-19 vaccines, but we support the right of Christians with religious objections to seek an exemption. The downloadable exemption letter below is available to anyone who is in agreement with its content and would like to use it in support of an exemption request.

There are two different versions:

You would like a pastor to acknowledge your religious objections by signing your letter and:

  1. You attend Cornerstone regularly and consider it your church home*; or,
