8/7 Pastoral Update:

Below is a brief update of our current activities:  

  • Sunday School Classes for Children/Youth and Community Groups for Adults – We tentatively plan to RESUME Sunday School Classes for children/youth and Community Groups for adults on Sunday, August 30th. In the children’s Sunday School Classes we will practice physical distancing and we will take temperatures of all children and children’s teachers as they check in for Sunday School to help ensure that no one is sick.

    · Nursery – We ARE providing nursery for ages 0-3 during the 10:30am Worship Service. Nursery will also be provided at 9:15am during Sunday School and Community Groups once these ministries resume meeting on August 30th. We will take temperatures of all children and nursery workers when they check in to help ensure that no one is sick.

    · Children’s Worship – We ARE providing Children’s Worship for age 4 through 2nd grade during our 10:30am Worship Service beginning on Sunday, August 16th. Parents will need to check their children in for Children’s Worship before the 10:30am service begins. Children’s Worship will be taking the following precautions:
    o All children and volunteers will have their temperature taken to help ensure that no one is sick.
    o All adult workers will wear a mask.
    o Children will practice physical distancing in fun and creative ways.
    o Children will be given individually wrapped snacks.
    o Children will play non-touch games.

    · Wednesday Evening Activities – We will NOT have Wednesday evening activities for the remainder of the summer. We tentatively plan to RESUME Wednesday evening activities on Wednesday, August 26th in conjunction with the beginning of the school year. (We will NOT have the after-school program for children & youth or the Wednesday evening dinners during the Fall semester.)  

We hope everyone can join us in one way or another this coming Sunday at 10:30am!
