And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

  • The Re-Opening Committee presented its Phase 1 Plan to the Joint Board on Saturday, June 6. Preparation for the resumption of in-person worship has begun per the Phase 1 plan; however, there is much preparation to be completed before actually meeting in-person. Also, we must continue to monitor the COVID-19 infection rate in our community and state along Centers for Disease Control (CDC) procedural guidance. A date has not been set for our resumption of in-person worshiping. The Phase 1 procedures are for the safety of all, those attending worship as well as the safety of loved ones that congregants will re-unite with at home. The cooperation of all congregants is needed for the safety of all. These are some highlights of the procedures for Phase 1  of Re-Opening in-person worshiping:
