Reopening UPdates for may 2021
Please click here to read a message from Pastor Christina about the following reopening steps Ad Council approved on April 29, 2021. These steps include:
- Resuming regular in-person worship at 9:30am. At this time, in-person worship will be held primarily outdoors in the church driveway. If it is raining or other inclement weather, the service will be moved inside the Sanctuary to ensure continuity of in-person worship. Pre-registration is not required, but greatly helps us in our planning and preparation. Safety protocols for worship can be found here.
- Use of the building by small groups. All use must be coordinated through the church office and follow safety protocols.
- Reopening the church office by Tuesday, June 1.
- Benchmarks to guide what types of music we can provide in outdoor and indoor settings, based on the NJ Department of Health COVID-19 Activity Level Index (CALI) metrics.
- Our online services will continue to be offered online at 10:30am via Facebook and our website, or by calling in to listen at 1-908-206-7598.
Any activity at the church, whether indoors or outdoors, requires the wearing of masks and social distancing, as we are still not at a point where the state has lifted mask-wearing guidelines and less than half of the wider community is vaccinated.
More information about each step named above, as well as the benchmarks for music, can be found by clicking here.
If you are sick, not feeling well, or showing any potential signs of COVID-19 to please err on the side of caution, stay home, and join us online .
