Throughout the month of January we will be meeting on Zoom for worship services and children’s programs. (Click here for Zoom link for worship service, Sundays, 10:30am) The leadership team and pastoral staff recognize that this is difficult news for our church family. But after prayer and discussion, in light of the highly contagious nature of the Omicron variant and the way that the number of COVID19 cases continues to rise we are discerning that this is a way for us to contribute to everyone’s health and safety as well as to do what we can towards decreasing the number of cases. The leadership team encourages everyone to get vaccinated and boosted, as well as to observe public health precautions:
- Remain masked indoors in public spaces (KN-95 or N-95 masks provide optimal protection).
- Wash hands and use hand sanitizer frequently.
- Observe physical distancing.
- Isolate if you are experiencing cold- or flu-like symptoms and seek to get a test to determine if you are negative or positive for COVID19.
The leadership team will determine at the end of January how we will move forward into February. Let’s all be praying for a decrease in cases so that we can enjoy the benefits of meeting in person again.
