In Person Services-Stage 2

Dear Congregants,

We are happy to inform you that the board decided Tuesday night to move forward with expanding our in-person services. Here is the new criteria, in addition to the previous requirements:

  • we are raising the participation amount up to 50 people total
  • we still require registration; however, if the cap is not met there will be an individual on site who will have the authority to allow entry to people who did not register.
  • we will allow children of all ages attend services under supervision of an adult. Children must be supervised at all times by at least one adult, and must be able to abide by masking and social distancing rules.  The playroom will not be available for use at this time.   
  • unvaccinated people above the age of 18 who have a medical reason (proven by a doctor) for not completing their vaccination can call the office for further discussion and possible accommodation
  • The result of the changes that were made now requires everyone to wear a mask at all times
