Hello everyone, our leadership board met Monday night and reviewed all the relevant guidelines and safety measures. I’m passionate about welcoming everyone back. To that, your safety and that of our community is our primary concern. We ask for a special measure of grace and patience at this time. All the things we are accustomed to i.e, hugging, handshaking, fellowship time etc we will have to avoid.
We will open our doors on June 21st @10:30am. As such, find the following safety measures we are putting in place. If for any reason you are not comfortable attending worship in the sanctuary or feeling unwell, we will miss you, but would encourage you to remain at home.
ps: In the interim, due to the limited seating, we plan to record the congregational worship service for your viewing later on Sunday and if at all possible to make provisions for live-streaming the service online. Please stay tuned.
