Worship Online Only in February, Hoping to Reopen in March

Our Covid Response Team, Executive Team, and Program staff have decided to continue with online-only worship and children’s religious exploration during the month of February. We will continue to reevaluate this by monitoring the transmission rates of new cases, deaths, and hospital status in New Castle County.

We hope to resume in person worship and children’s religious exploration again in March, with the new requirements listed below.

We are taking these steps to care for not only our congregation but also for our community at large. We want to create an environment of safety and comfort for all so we have added to our requirements for those attending in person worship, religious exploration, and other programs in the building:

Adults must wear a properly fitting, preferably N95 or KN95, mask. Children and youth must wear properly fitting surgical or KN95 masks. Cloth masks and bandana type coverings will not be accepted substitutes. We will have KN95 masks available if you do not have one.
Adults and children 5 years old and above must show proof of vaccinations.
Vaccination status must be recorded with the church office prior to or upon entering the building for worship services or children’s activities. To do so, you may bring your card with you to the service to have it captured in our records, stop by the church office during office hours, or upload your card online. Please check Enews next week for detailed instructions on how you can provide proof of vaccination.
Once your vaccination status is recorded, adults will be asked to initial a sign-in form each Sunday rather than having to show proof again.
Children’s and youth’s vaccination status will be maintained privately by the Director of Religious Exploration.
Three feet of social distancing must be maintained between household groups.
Do not come into the building if you have had a known recent exposure to someone with the virus or have any symptoms.

Our online services will be livestreamed from the sanctuary each Sunday until further notice. Please be sure to read Enews each week for future updates. Thank you!
