When Will We Open?

Again, the board wrestled with the question of WHEN do we get to open the church for Sunday worship service. There is a team working on how to open as safely as possible. We hope to begin meeting in person for worship outdoors. July 4th is on a Sunday and may be our first in-person worship service in a year and a half. When we return to in-person worship, we are working on ways to continue to reach those people who have been participating online. The board has decided to follow the CDC guidelines and the Oregon Health Authority guidelines as they apply to Lane County. Masks will continue to be required for people inside the church building.

Congregational Meeting

Twice a year we hold a congregational meeting. On June 27, immediately after the 10 a.m. Zoom worship service, we will meet via Zoom (hopefully the last time on Zoom). We will have a variety of reports to the congregation and announce the results of the election of new board members and officers. Because of the pandemic and our bylaw rules for a written ballot, the election will be conducted by email or postal mail. There are three board member positions open and at the time of writing this article we have received applications from four church members. Ballots have gone out to our members and need to be returned by June 24th (please contact the church office if you are a church member and have not received a ballot).

We hope to see you all at the congregational meeting.
