COVID-19 Response (Updated 4/16/21)

At our last board meeting (Apr. 13) we voted to begin serving breakfast again on Sabbath morning, May 1 from 9:20 – 9:50 am. If you’re coming for breakfast, please do so within this time frame so the breakfast workers can get the kitchen cleaned up in time for them to participate in their Sabbath School classes. Please do not come late and ask them for breakfast.

We are currently meeting in-person for all our Sabbath School divisions, our Worship Service, Pathfinders, and Adventurers. We are still meeting via Zoom for Prayer Meeting, Board Meeting, MLT Meetings, Women’s Ministries, and other business meetings.

We are requiring everyone to wear a face covering (other than when eating) and continue to encourage appropriate social distancing.

As always, our worship service (beginning at 11:10 am) is livestreamed and available here on our Website, our Facebook Page, and our YouTube Channel.

In order to keep everyone safe and healthy, please keep the following items in mind:

If you do not feel well, have an elevated temperature, or have been exposed to someone else who is sick, please enjoy the service from home and do not risk infecting anyone else.

Please wear a mask while at church (other than when eating) and while interacting with people in the parking lot.  If you don’t have one, we will be happy to provide one for you when you come.

Please generously use the provided hand sanitizer.

Please refrain from hugging or shaking hands with anyone outside of your family group.

The water fountains are not currently available. We will have some bottles of water available. Feel free to bring some from home for you and your family.

It will still be a while until we get back to potlucks.

If you are uncomfortable in any way with meeting in person don’t hesitate to wait a bit longer before venturing back to our building. You can view the service here on our Website, our Facebook Page, or our YouTube Channel.
