COVID-19 Update

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Thank you for your continuing patience and understanding as we journey through this time of COVID together. We continue to chart a middle path between fully shut down and fully open as we discern how best to grow together and show love for our neighbor. We've made some changes lately that we want you to be aware of (if you aren't already):

  1. We have begun offering coffee again before and between services. We are providing hand sanitizer for your use before grabbing any creamers and if you do not feel comfortable touching the creamers or coffee pumps, Amanda is ready and willing to assist in pouring them for you. We are still keeping an eye on physical distancing and so have not yet set up the tables or couches for use in the coffee bar area. 

  2. We have taped flyers around the church reminding everyone of safe health practices. Whether there was COVID or not, these are good to have around. We continue to encourage everyone to exercise their responsibility and love in keeping others safe.

  3. We have spread out the chairs in the sanctuary to provide more seating while still maintaining physical distancing. We cannot do that in the back balcony or side balconies - so we ask that the ropes be kept in place and not removed.

  4. For Sunday School, masks are optional for all teachers in all grades. Snacks will not be allowed during the Sunday School hour.

  5. For adult Sunday School classes, only so many people are able to be in the room at one time to maintain physical distancing and to NOT require masks of teachers or participants. Once the room is full, anyone else will be asked to attend Joel's Sunday School class in the sanctuary.

  6. For AWANA, refer to the AWANA page.

  7. Contactless thermometers are available in every room. If someone notices a sick child (whether related to COVID or not), take their temperature. If over 100.4, the child will not be allowed back in the classroom and will wait in the isolation area (the office between Jesse's office and Jenn's office) for a parent to pick them up.

In Christ,

Jesse Sternke
