We have some updates and changes for you!
1) Starting Sunday May 30th, we will be worshipping outside. After talking with other area pastors, reviewing the NJ Covid Guidelines, our consistory decided this is our best option. We will continue to follow the NJ Covid Guidelines, so masks are not required for outside services. However, if there is bad weather, we will have the service in the sanctuary and masks will still be required inside until the guidelines change.
2) The church building is open to use for committee meetings and group gatherings. For example, if your committee would like to meet in person, your group can use the church building. We should have the kitchen ready again and available for use by June 1st. Please email the office for a building use form so we can put your meeting on the calendar.
3) At this time, masks are still required for meetings in the church.
4) Once a month this summer, we will have refreshments/fellowship after the outdoor service. By September, we are hoping to return to weekly refreshments and fellowship. We haven't set dates yet for this, but we will keep you posted!!
5) We will continue to stream the services and keep them on the website.
On behalf of the consistory, thank you so much for your flexibility and patience during this challenging time! We are getting close and we are feeling so hopeful...not just for our church, but our country and world as a whole!
See you soon!
Grace and Peace,
