Covid-19 Protocols and Return to Campus

main image

Hello church family,

Basketball great, Michael Jordan, was once quoted as saying, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” I am pleased to announce that is exactly what we have done this past year! And now, I am equally pleased to announce it is all coming to an end.

Effective June 15, 2021, we are lifting the mask and social distancing requirement on the church campus for those who are fully vaccinated. In addition to masks being optional for the fully vaccinated, participants in all adult groups will no longer have to undergo check-in and check-out procedures. While this is a bright light at the end of a dark tunnel for many, please remember to remain sensitive to those in our community who are unable to receive the vaccine due to age or underlying health conditions.

Although the mask requirement is being lifted for the church campus, it remains in effect for the Preschool, as well as all staff, and volunteers (regardless of vaccination status) in certain situations. Masks are also still required to be worn by participants in our Children and Youth Ministry programs (including adult volunteers). If a youth participant, age 12 and up, is fully vaccinated, he or she must present proof of full vaccination prior to being permitted to be mask-free.

Return to full in-person worship is expected to occur on Sunday, September 12 with new worship times. I encourage you to fill out our newest survey by June 13 to help us discern what those times will be. Click here to access the Online Ministry Survey.

This full return in the fall enables our staff to take vacation this summer and also to install air-conditioning in our Chapel for a more ventilated (and less hot) space. Until that point, the Café Service will remain on the outdoor turf at 9 am and our Sanctuary service will continue at 10:30 am with corresponding kids’ programs. The online service option will also remain at 9:30 am and 11 am.

Thank you all for the work you have done this year to keep everyone in our community safe! I am grateful we are moving one step closer to normalcy and equally grateful for who we have become and are still becoming through this unusual year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the church office.

Blessings,

Pastor Karla

Online Ministry Survey

The newly formed Online Ministry Committee wants to hear from you! We have created a survey to gain insight and information about how we can best remain connected to all of you in the most effective and convenient way(s) possible.

Please take just a few minutes to complete our survey and share your opinions. The survey will be available until Sunday, June 13.
 


In addition to surveying our church community, we are also listening to feedback through many conversations and seeking advice from various industry experts to determine the approach that would best serve the PLCPC community and beyond. The committee, which includes Chris Capen, Arts & Worship chair; Kristin Stephany, Adult Ministry chair; Dave Baker, Audio Video volunteer; Evan Gratz, Director of Community Life and Melissa Mullins, Director of Online Ministry will present their findings in the form of a recommended Online Ministry strategy to the Session at their June 23 meeting.
