October 22, Thursday: Reopening Team Evaluation Meeting

The team evaluated our inside in-person gatherings and made some minor improvements.

The team will closely watch our room capacity (based on 6ft social distancing guidelines) to consider an additional service if needed. We discussed what it would take to add another service – feedback from the people, volunteers for the service.

The team is researching community health guidelines and a variety of church plans and procedures to help guide us in making a plan to address the possibility of future building closures and what to do in case of a Covid-19 positive case in our service. More information to follow.


September 9, Thursday: We will begin meeting inside Sunday, October 4.

We’ve had an amazing time gathering for in-person worship in our backyard since June 14th, but we are beyond excited to gather in-person inside beginning Sunday, October 4th! Some of you are jumping up and down because you have been waiting for this for a long time… and some of you are cringing inside because you are not sure of the safety of your health. We understand both responses… and everything in between! We are a beautiful mix of people (a beautiful “salad”) with diverse thoughts and feelings concerning many things… one of which is Covid-19. We encourage and challenge you to love one another well.
