Front Porch Visits!

As the weather gets cooler, Holly+ and/or Joanna+ would love to join you outdoors for a Front Porch Visit! Please reach out to them to set one up.

Regathering during COVID

Your Regathering Team spent time looking at the current metrics and the increase of COVID cases.

With that in mind, we will:

  • Continue to require masks at all worship services, social distance, and limit attendance capacity to 75%.
  • Ask staff to wear masks during business hours when more than three people are gathered in a room.
  • Require any congregational or community meetings being held inside remain socially distanced, masked, and offer no food. We highly encourage groups to meet outside or online.

Changes to our regathering guidelines are made in consultation by our Rector and our Regathering Team and determined by the following metrics which were recommended by the Diocese. Expect changes when:

  • The number of COVID-19 cases in the Evansville area has consistently decreased for 14 days.
  • The infection rate in the Evansville area is less than 1.0%.
  • The positive test rate in the Evansville Metro area is less than 10% and preferably closer to 3% or less.
