Covid Protocol Update for Sunday, August 22

From Pastor Amy:
Fellowship Hour has been moved outside due to the surge in COVID cases. When the CDC was advising that unvaccinated people could be unmasked indoors, we wanted to offer the option of indoor Fellowship Hour even as we remain masked in worship. We were more cautious with worship to make that central event safer for children and immunocompromised people. Now that there is substantial transmission in our county, we want to follow CDC guidelines to mask indoors for all large group gatherings. Thus, the Congregation Council has determined that Fellowship Hour should be outside. 
Coffee and treats will be set up in the entranceway to the Fellowship Hall. You are asked to go through the line masked and then enjoy your treats outdoors. In case of rain, Fellowship Hour today will be cancelled. Youth will meet with Kelli in the library with masks.

The Congregation Council has also determined that masks will be required for all Sunday School and Youth Forum activities. Also, we ask that those who want to lead in worship or work with children and youth be vaccinated. (Note, the Congregation Council, rather than a COVID task force, is now setting the COVID protocols.)
