covid-19 update

The staff and church leaders continue to monitor the pandemic and several updates are being made to our policies based on recommendations from the CDC and the local health department. Here are updates to our policies:

  • Masks are optional. We encourage you to wear a mask if you are more comfortable with a mask in large groups or if you are immunocompromised.
  • We continue to encourage you to join us for worship online if you are not feeling well.
  • We will reduce social distancing to three feet moving forward with a plan to eliminate social distancing in the near future.
  • Additional spaces in the building are open for meetings due to the reduction of social distancing.
  • The nursery will be open during worship services.
  • Shuttle service is not available at the moment, but plans are moving forward to start service in the near future. Please contact the church office (445-6131) if you are available to periodically drive the shuttle on Sunday mornings.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue in ministry together.
