Update 8/22/21 (Current) - Masks are required
Due to recent surges of the Covid-19 Delta variant (and now new Omicron variant) in the country and our community, Masks will again be required in person regardless of vaccination status (but can be taken off while in your seats when safely socially distanced from others). Communion will still be handed out in self-contained packaging to reduce contact with the ingested communion. We will be disinfecting, and have hand sanitizer and masks available. At this point, we will still not be having Fellowship Time after worship. We still ask people feeling sick, exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19, or who have been in close contact with persons with covid-19, to stay home and tune in remotely on our Facebook Live-stream, or a recorded service published here on our website.
Update 6/13/21 - Masks are no longer required
In accordance with the most recent CDC mask-wearing guidelines, we will be dropping our mask requirements for fully-vaccinated individuals, and recommend (but don't require) individuals still wear masks if they are not vaccinated. 6-ft Social Distancing is still recommended, but no longer required. Communion will still be handed out in self-contained packaging to reduce contact with the ingested communion. At this point, we will still not be having Fellowship Time after worship, but that will most likely resume sometime this summer. We still ask people feeling sick, exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19, or who have been in close contact with persons with covid-19, to stay home and tune in remotely on our Facebook Live-stream, or a recorded service published here on our website.
4/1/21 - We're Back!
We're glad to announce we are able to all come back to worshipping in-person again in the sanctuary on Sundays, beginning this Easter Sunday, 4/4! After just over a year since last seeing your faces, we are finally able to see them again on Sundays due to the decline in overall cases and deaths in the state and community, and the steady increase in vaccinations by church members and the community.
Masks and social-distancing will be required if you are attending in-person. Masks can be taken off once you are seated in your pews and safely distanced from others. You must put them back on whenever you leave your seats. We will also be disinfecting contact-areas, offering hand-sanitizer, using disposable self-contained Communion juice/wafer cups, as well as not offering Fellowship time after services for the time being. Once enough of the congregation is fully vaccinated and things ease up, we can go back to doing Fellowship time.
If you are still uncomfortable or unable to attend in-person, we will still be offering our live-streams of services at 10am on Sunday mornings on our Facebook Page. Past recordings will remain on our page, and also be here on the 'Recorded Services' tab above. Please stay home if you or someone in close contact to you is feeling sick or exhibiting any flu-like symptoms associated with covid-19.
We can't wait to see you on Sunday and hope we can begin our journey of going back to normal, so we can give you all big hugs again! Stay Safe and have a Happy Easter and Happy Spring! God Bless.
