Health Advisory Update  January 2022 – online Sunday School & Confirmation

The Church Council, along with the Health Advisory Team met on Tuesday, January 11th to discuss and decide the best course of action for health and safety at Peace.
 
Covid (and the Omicron variant) are spiking, and expected to increase even more in the next few weeks.  As a result, the council approved the following motion (and actions):
 
1. Masks will continue to be required at church services for the next 4+ weeks;
2. Confirmation and Sunday School will be virtual (not in-person) for the next 4+ weeks (Sunday School video link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI3lv2gVhSC34Bmx_MsYQnw);
3. There will be no vocal choir (including rehearsals) for the next 4+ weeks;
4. There will be no donut room for the next 4+ weeks;
5. Council will meet again in early February (about 4 weeks from today) to revisit the above issues, including the state of the virus at that time.
 
Thank you everyone for your understanding and respect as we try our best to share God’s Love while still doing our part to help the hospitals and medical professionals as they are overwhelmed.

Weekly Worship at Peace

Join us for worship Thursday nights at 7:00 or Sunday mornings at 8:00, 9:20 or 10:30 (9:20 is broadcast live on Facebook).

Holy Communion is celebrated at all services the first and third Sundays of the month.  Everyone who believes that Christ is truly present in this special meal is invited to join us at the Lord’s Table.

Our church offers the convenience of Hearing Loop technology for hearing aid users.  Bulletins are available in large print, and hymn lyrics are displayed on our large screens at either side of our altar.

All Children are welcome at worship though our nursery is available Sunday mornings for children through age 4 who might need a quiet place to play.  The nursery is located just off the worship area near our sound booth.  Parents of infants will also find a private area to feed their baby in this nursery.
