In light of rising vaccination rates and downtrending COVID cases, there have been a number of restrictions rolled back recently by the CDC and the State of Michigan. On July 1st, these rollbacks will continue as the State of Michigan will essentially remove all remaining COVID related government mandates. As your elder team we will also be continuing our reopening process, while still looking out for the safety of our body.
Based on recent survey results our internal vaccination rate appears to be higher than the states which is very encouraging. Yet we recognize that vaccines likely won’t be available for children ages 11 and under until the late fall or early winter, so we're planning on a two stage return to unrestricted worship services and Sunday school.
Stage 1, starts July 1st.
Stage 2, starts 2 months after vaccines become available for kids as young as 6 months (expected late fall/early winter). We see this essentially as the new “normal” state, so we will fully reopen at this point.
As always, Sunday Service will continue to be available via livestream here.
