The purpose of the COVID Protocol Committee is to develop, and continually review and evaluate, our safety response to the COVID-19 pandemic based on the available scientific data. We will protect the health of our congregation to the extent possible, keeping in mind the physical, emotional and spiritual health of all, by being flexible and ready to pivot, based on current COVID data.

This may include, but is not limited to, decisions about in-person activities, mitigation protocols (i.e., masks, social distancing) and when necessary, suspending activities in the church building. The committee meets (virtually) weekly for this purpose and reports to the Church Board. This is an ad-hoc group, not a standing committee, and thus the term of membership will be the duration of the need for pandemic- related decisions.

Questions should be directed to the Chair of the committee by contacting the church office.
