This weekend we return to in-person worship services for the first time since we were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It's been 19 long months since people have been in our pews and we are starting back slowly and cautiously. For your safety and the safety of everyone attending a number of measures have been put in place to make it as safe as possible to gather. Masks, for instance, will be required to be worn by all people at all times while inside the building, even when speaking or singing.
To read more about what you can expect when you come to church, check out the document below.
The worship service begins at 10:00 am. If you are not feeling well and are experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, nausea, tiredness, etc.) or if you have not yet reached full vaccination (two weeks after second shot) we encourage that you please stay at home and access the service online. We will be livestreaming the service as well as recording it and uploading it to our YouTube channel later that same day. The Live Stream can be accessed through the homepage on our website. Look for the blue banner at the top of the page. Expectations are to have the Livestream available at about 9:50 to be able to see announcements etc. If for some reason the Live Stream is unavailable you will be able to watch the service later in the day on our YouTube Channel
It is realized that not all people will be comfortable returning to church at this time. We are not all in the same place and there are many factors to consider when making a decision. We respect that and want everyone to feel safe and comfortable when deciding to return. If you have any concerns or questions about our re-opening, please do not hesitate to speak to Pastor Brian or any member of the Church Council. All comments are welcome.
Looking forward to seeing your smiling eyes (for now) and soon your smiling faces as restrictions are slowly revamped.
Your understanding and patience is appreciated while we work our way back to having everyone join for In-Person Services. Remember to Be Safe Be Calm and Be Kind.
