PLANS DELAYED FOR RETURNING TO SANCTUARY
We had hoped to return to in-person services on August 2, but due to the continued increase in Covid- 19 cases in Springfield and Greene County, our leadership feels it would be best to delay our plans. We will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the city masking ordinance and the impact returning to school will have on the public health situation. We will reassess in early September, and unless conditions deteriorate further, we now hope to return on September 13, and will keep you informed as plans develop.
We recognize that when we can come back, some of you may not feel comfortable doing so, and we completely understand that. So we will continue to post video of our worship services, although it will not be pre-recorded and posted ahead of time as we are doing now.
Please know that our primary concern is the safety of our congregation and community. This has not been and will not be an easy time for us. We look forward to coming back together as soon as possible! In the meantime, please be careful to wear your mask, wash your hands, and keep a safe distance.
