A year in, we continue to do our best to submit to our governing authorities while providing essential and critical times of worship for our community. We have two services on Sunday, both below 25% capacity, with chairs spaced over 6 feet, and with masks, sanitizer, and other precautions in place as laid out in our COVID site plan, available at the church. While that seems daunting, in practice you are able to easily navigate to an empty seat and be part of our physical worship.
We continue to ask those who are sick or who have had any close contact with COVID-positive patients to watch our livestream at home, and that is also available to anyone who is at risk or simply more comfortable with avoiding congregational settings. Please be welcomed wherever you are! You can find the livestream here at the website or on Facebook or Youtube. Just click on the appropriate link on the homepage to join us that way.
We are very thankful that we have had no known exposures or contraction of the virus in any of our church settings throughout the many months we have had this plan in place. We're grateful! We know that could change at anytime and are so appreciative to everyone being flexible and kind in helping to manage risk while continuing to worship.
We have now added nursery, toddler, and K-5 classes to the second (10:30 AM) service. These classes follow state guidelines (so younger kids are not required to be masked in their classrom, but all volunteers and workers are).
Our youth groups have been meeting for the past several months, with no known exposures. Appropriate measures as required are in place and available (social distancing, hand sanitation, and masks). You can find more information here.
Overall... our small size and a large sanctuary space have been a great blessing... as have so many of you willing to submit to guidelines and recommendations. Thanks for your patience in these ongoing times as we slowly and carefully gather. Please don't feel pressured in any way; you are welcomed to join us in any of the ways that most benefit you and your family.
As usual, if you have any questions, please contact any of our staff and we'll make sure your question is answered or your concern is heard. So grateful for a Savior who has us in every season and every circumstance!
