Worship Open to All

All persons may now attend the live Sunday 9:30 worship at the church. We are no longer limiting the number of attendees.  You do not have to call for a reservation. system. Please join us in person for worship! People will be seated in the pews and rotunda.

Is It Safe?

We will continue to greet you at the West door, and record your name as you enter.

Masks must will still be worn for worship, meetings or other activities, and until after you exit. We will continue to use social distancing at this time, out of an abundance of caution.   The congregration will continue to not sing.  However, soloists will continue to provide songs and music in a safe manner. There will not be fellowship time after worship.  Please stay seated before and during the entire service, even though we all would like to get up

and talk each other.

The COVID statistics for Washtenaw County are encouraging. Our ongoing review has found that the positivity rate for the county is low, at a plateau of about 3%; for comparison, the rest of Michigan has a positivity rate of 8.4%. 82% of Washtenaw county residents ages 65 or older have completed the series of vaccinations, with 52.5% residents fully vaccinated who are 16 years and older. So our county is doing an excellent job of vaccinations! We’ve also seen that, currently, those attending worship have all been fully vaccinated.

The church's COVID Response Team will continue to monitor what is occurring in our county and our community.

The good news – if still a bit confusing – is the statement from the Centers for Disease Control that those who have been fully vaccinated for more than two weeks can now begin to resume many pre-COVID activities. For more specific information on this, from both the CDC and the state of Michigan, here are two websites:

https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98178_98455-559589--,00.html

We welcome the opportunity to return to worship live in the church.

If you have not yet been vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so!

Will the Sunday worship continue to be live streamed?

If you aren’t yet comfortable attending live Sunday worship at this time, the service will continue to be live-streamed.  You will find the link to the streamed worship service on Home Page.

The church's COVID response team includes:Ed Smith (Chair), Lisa Friedman, Gerry Conti, Mark McClure, and Pastor Bri.
