The governor of the State of Illinois has issued new guidelines concerning the CORONA-19 virus. As of August 30, 2021 a statewide mask mandate has been issued for all indoor activities. With those changes the leadership of this congregation asks that all who meet at our building for worship and Bible classes wear a mask while indoors. Individuals and families are encouraged to follow published state and county health recommendations as they may apply to their families.
In order to facilitate communication during our worship services, those who have a speaking role should use the podium and remove their mask while speaking/singing. This includes the leading of songs and prayers. leading at the communion table, teaching and preaching. Of course, this only applies while engaged in the respective speaking/singing roles.
At this time there are no other recommendations or changes to our activities during our regular meeting times.
Naturally we would like for everyone to be with us for our worship at our church building. However, some may feel that they cannot do so at this time. For those individuals, an online option is available. (See below.)
Recognizing that some may still have reservations in returning to our 'normal' operation, the following accommodations are being made:
- Masks will be available at the entryway for anyone without a mask.
- Hand sanitizer will be available at the entryway and other strategic locations.
