Updated April 18th, 2022
Friends, please read this communication carefully and do everything you can to abide by these practices so that we can all stay healthy! These guidelines seek to support our mutual safety and well-being while in our building or on church grounds. Although we will do our best to make sure our church is a safe environment, we cannot promise that you will be safe here. Please follow these procedures below and use your best judgment when returning to our church facility.
These procedures reflect where we are now.
These will be evaluated, updated, and communicated as our situation changes over time.
They have been prepared in dialogue with council and staff, and are based on most current guidance from a variety of sources including the CDC, Oregon Health Authority, and the Oregon Synod of the ELCA, taking into consideration our county’s current risk level .
