Current Covid safety protocols
Updated April 26, 2022
From the start of the pandemic in March of 2020, our goal as a community has been to love our neighbors well and to honor the medically vulnerable among us by practicing effective safety protocols. At this stage of the pandemic, these are our community protocols which we ask you to honor when you visit:
SANITIZE HANDS BEFORE RECEIVING COMMUNION
Hand sanitizer is available, though you are welcome to bring your own. Please use the hand sanitizer provided for you when coming up to receive the Communion bread and juice.
Because we still have a large number of children in our congregation who are unable to receive a vaccine and some members who are at higher medical risk of developing serious illness, we do ask for everyone over the age of 2 - both vaccinated and unvaccinated - to wear a mask while inside our building.
We have restarted making coffee and tea available before and during the service. Feel free to unmask to enjoy your beverages, then put your mask back on.
For those in need of more caution, one section of our sanctuary has also been designated as a "masks only" zone, which means no beverages or snacks are permitted so that masking can be maintained at all times.
Additionally, we have provided signs that may be placed on chairs next to you in order to indicate you would prefer for those seats to remain empty for additional social distancing.
Outdoors, masks and social distancing are optional. Please be considerate and check with others before shaking hands or extending hugs.
