Announcement from Council President on March 24th, 2021

I am very pleased to announce that the statistical COVID numbers which we have been tracking and reporting have met the minimum requirements for the past 21 days which means we are moving into Phase II of the Re-Gathering Plan.  While Phase II doesn’t change many of the protocols, it does allow for a larger group of choir members to participate in our live services and allows for their seating to revert back to the balcony area which allows for more seating in the sanctuary area. But most importantly, it means that if the numbers stay low and safe for another 14 days, we can move to Phase III which allows for more seating and allows us to re-introduce communion into our worship service in the sanctuary.  Let’s all pray for continued progress on the COVID issue.  Thank you so much for your continued support.    – Robert Menking, Council President
