The Regathering Task Force has decided that we should begin making plans now to reopen the church using the best practices outlined by government and health officials. We are utilizing the “best information today” when making our plans. If for some reason we go back a step, or other complications arise, this date may change.
First Sunday Regathering Worship Service will be
July 19 at 10:30 a.m.
(doors will open at 10:00 a.m.)
Please help us know how many to expect by pre-registering for the Worship Services below.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, we recommend that those in the Vulnerable Population* at higher risk of severe illness continue to participate and worship online.
Vulnerable Population is defined to include those 65+ years of age and those of any age with serious underlying health conditions. More information can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-at-higher-risk.html
Our church has some unique issues and we are a large venue, so the precautions we must take might be different from other venues. Keep in mind, compliance is an expression of care for those around you. Even if you feel safe, others may be more vulnerable or unlikely to attend without safety measures in place, so please make every effort to follow these precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy during this time.
