Reopening Task Force

 

As we at First Mennonite Church continue to take seriously the pandemic of COVID-19, we also realize that life has changed around us.  We are grateful for the strong fully vaccinated rate in our church, and now we have boosters and pediatric vaccines that will only help with better protection.  We believe that the safety precautions taken within the church body, especially with large group gatherings, have worked well for us in the past and we want to continue much of that.  Therefore, we will continue masking and social distancing for worship, Sunday School, and music ensembles.  However, we will leave it to small groups to discern other practices when they meet.  And, if various groups, including Sunday School classes, are in agreement, eating meals together is fine.  The drinking fountains are now available to all, but people are also welcome to bring bottled water.  We will continue to encourage outside groups, who use our building, to mask and take similar safety precautions.
