COVID Safety Measures

The health and safety of all our congregation, staff, and visitors is our top priority. We are following John Wesley's teaching to do no harm, by implementing the following safety precautions.

As of April 2nd

As we enter into the third year of the pandemic we have some sustained measures to help us to ministry in a safe and effective manner. In Phase 4,  church groups will be able to schedule meetings during the week.  Outside groups will be able to use the building. Please contact the church office for reservations and room capacity questions.  Food service is now permitted but groups serving food should be aware of health and safety protocols as recommended by the CDC. Masks are welcomed for adults, Children, and Youth but not required.  Please see the Youth and Children protocols below.
