We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and are working hard to stay connected during the health crisis. To that, we have suspended all in-person activities (church school, adult education, worship, meetings, and events) through the end of March 2021. Details are as follows:
- Our policy on in-person worship and use of the buildings was reviewed, and in consideration of current conditions and predictions for the coronavirus pandemic over the next several months, Session extended the current policy through March 31, 2021. Worship will continue online via Facebook and YouTube, and the church building and church house will be closed for all uses except the Child Care Center and limited administrative functions.
- Church groups wishing to meet outdoors on church property may do so, but must be masked and observe social distancing guidelines.
- A proposal has been made to invest in additional video recording equipment to improve our video quality and reliability for Sunday worship and the Concert Series. The new equipment will allow simultaneous streaming on Facebook and YouTube platforms.
- The Trustees have proposed a pavilion for the church grounds, located behind the church house, to permit outdoor worship, meetings, and use by church and community groups. The pavilion will hold approximately 60 persons, and will have movable tables and chairs to allow flexibility in usage. Session approved the project, and completion during 2021 is planned.
