Covid 19 Information

Everyone is welcome to join us Sunday mornings
in our two sanctuaries either in person or via zoom.

New Policy After consideration, the Official Board has decided beginning November 28th, 2021, that we will be joining other congregations and faith communities in requiring that all people leading in worship be fully vaccinated: Here was the motion:

That all worship leaders, in the sanctuary are required to be fully vaccinated or medically exempted. This includes, but is not limited to, all clergy, Licensed Lay Worship Leaders, preachers, organists/choir directors, choir members, scripture readers, and greeters.

We will also continue to require everyone age 2 or older to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. We believe this is the right thing to do, and it reflects the current guidance of the Windsor and Essex Health Unit.
