In light of the City of Columbia’s 30-day ordinance requiring mask face coverings in all public places, the session met in a called meeting on Thursday, September 8 to change our current practices.
Per this ordinance, everyone is required to wear a mask/face covering when:
**in the church building and
**when standing less than 6-feet from one another outside.
(The liturgist, preacher, and any soloist may unmask when speaking from the pulpit or other mic in worship.)
**We will also, of course, continue practicing distancing.
We also ask that you please refrain from gathering in the narthex before and after worship.
Thank you for your help in creating a safe, welcoming environment for everyone!
