  1. Masks are required for unvaccinated individuals only. Vaccinations are strongly encouraged, however. Vaccinated persons do not need to wear a mask.
  2. Pews remain marked off. Social distancing is still encouraged. We pass the peace at the end of the service by reciting our mission statement. Pastor Sebert dismisses the congregation after the benediction.
  3. Hymnals and Bibles have just recently been placed back in the pews. Singing is now allowed.  We do not sanitize after the service any longer.
