Here is what we ask of you:

  • Come as you feel comfortable, knowing that despite our best mitigation efforts, Omicron is spreading and may spread at church.
  • If gathering is not right for you right now, join us online!
  • Wear a well-fitting mask when in the church building. The COVID-19 Task Force strongly recommends N95, KN95, or well-fitting surgical masks, as they have been shown to reduce the spread of Omicron.
  • RSVP for in-person worship HERE or by calling the church during office hours (404-321-1844). If the 11:00 a.m. service is full, consider worshipping at 8:30 a.m.
  • During worship, sit only in marked pews and practice social distancing. 
  • Help keep our staff safe by offering a wave instead of a hug, handshake, or fist bump.
  • Stay home for at least 5 days if you do not feel well, if you or someone in your household has tested positive, or if you were exposed to Covid and are not vaccinated.

Here’s what we commit to you: 

  • We will make every effort to ensure that an online option for worship and programming is offered wherever possible. We are working to upgrade our internet service, to decrease the chance of interruptions to our livestream.
  • We will have masks and hand sanitizer available in a clean building.
  • We will continue to offer online opportunities for Bible studies, Sunday School, committee meetings, and other ministry programs whenever possible.
  • Your pastors and elders will pray for you and are available if there are other ways we can support one another.

We are grateful for your patience and grace as we navigate this latest surge, knowing that additional changes may come. If you have questions or concerns, or need a prayer or a word of hope, please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Anna at [email protected].
