4. Masks - Strongly encouraged for those who are not vaccinated and for children ages 12 and younger; not required for those who are vaccinated
5. Singing - allowed but with masks on
6. Bibles / Hymnals / Prayer Cards - not available at this time
7. Communion - distributed at stations in the front of the Worship Center, Pastors and communion assistants will wear masks and gloves
8. Prayground - remain closed at this time
9. Coffee Hour - no coffee hour at this time
10. Group meetings - ALL Groups (internal and external), no exceeding 50, will be allowed to meet in Redeemer. All the aforementioned guidelines (#'s 1-9) will be applied.
Praise God for His continuous grace and mercy and for the Holy Spirit's guidance! We want to thank our Council and Pastors for their leadership during this time. We also want to thank YOU for your patience as we work to make Redeemer a space safe for ALL to return. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday - God's peace!
