COVID-19 Protocols End on March 1, 2022

Feb 24, 2022

The Church Council has voted to end the COVID-19 protocols that have been in place to varying degrees for nearly two years.
 Beginning on Tuesday, March 1, 2022:
· Wearing masks will no longer be required in the building or in worship.
· Social distancing will no longer be intentionally maintained.
· The serving of Holy Communion will return to pre-pandemic method as soon as doing so can be organized, including recruiting additional communion servers and suppliers.
· Offering plates will be passed at 9 am worship.
· Eating and drinking will be allowed in the building; the Kinship Café will resume as soon as it can be organized and staffed.
Please note that this decision was made due to the declining number of COVID-19 cases in Summit County. Should the number of cases increase, the Council will not hesitate to reinstitute protocols for everyone’s safety.
Those who wish to continue wearing masks are certainly encouraged to do so; KN95 masks are recommended.
The Council gives thanks for the congregation’s patience with this process, and for the support of their leadership, especially during “pandemic times.”
