The Gradual and Safe Reopening of Church
We are talking with our leaders and medical experts about the safest way to open church buildings and have identified
Sunday, June 7, as our first day back.
Here is some of what that will mean:
- Masks will be required of anyone in the buildings.
- Social distancing will be practiced in terms of seating and gathering spaces.
- There will be no nursery, children, or youth ministries at first.
- Worship services will be simplified – no bulletins, offering plates.
- Singing will be less.
- People with at risk conditions should worship online.
- Anyone who does not feel well must stay at home.
