When Can We Come Back to Worship?
Union Hill Church at this time is following the guidelines set up by the East Ohio Conference. We are in Phase 2, which means that unless the church is prepared to meet the needs of the congregation and take the precautions set forth by the CDC, the church should not meet. The Administrative Board met and has made the decision that we will not be joining in worship until we are prepared to meet the requirements for the safety of our congregation. We will continue with the livestreaming of our worship service until further notice.
However, in Phase 2, small groups and church committees can meet. But until we are prepared, they cannot meet in the church building. The business of the church – missions, trustees, SPRC, etc. – continues and so it is highly recommended that all committees of the church look at options to meet. When the committees meet there are guidelines that must be followed: the CDC guidelines, and also guidelines that we received from our insurance company. At meetings, the following must be done: Each committee must have a list of those in attendance, along with their contact information, and the date and place of the meeting, face coverings are encouraged; and social distancing – 6 ft apart – must take place. Phone conference or video calls are always a good option and are easy to set up.
Also, until further notice, no larger groups can rent or use the fellowship hall.
The Administrative Board is actively working on getting prepared to meet the needs of the congregation to return to worship. Please be in prayer and be patient as we work through this process. Please know that this is all for the safety of our congregation and we are not taking this lightly. We truly covet your prayers.
