2021 UPDATED COVID INFOThe Reopening Task team has been closely monitoring the NYS and Chemung County dashboards regarding covid-19 and is recommending that all unvaccinated persons entering the building should continue to wear masks and social distance during all church activities. This includes worship, fellowship time, meetings, small group settings, etc. For those attending worship, we will continue to reserve a section in the Sanctuary for those feeling uncomfortable and would like to social distance. Cleaning is still important and we will continue to provide wipes in all rooms to wipe down surfaces. In addition, a disinfectant spray will be in all restrooms to spray surfaces. We recognize that we are a very busy church with various activities happening most days pertaining to church members and members of the community alike. As always please continue to wash hands, social distance, and if you feel sick, please stay home. These recommendations are to ensure the safety of all concerned, most importantly our children. In the event conditions worsen, we will adjust recommendations and guidelines accordingly.  (9/13/2021)


Thank you for your patience and understanding!
