The Leadership of PRCC is striving to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic with care and concern for our congregation. Keeping our congregation connected, engaged, having spiritual needs tended to, while also keeping everyone safe, has been the highest priority.
April 2021 Update:
With increasing numbers of folks being vaccinated and guidelines shifting, your staff and leadership are working to keep our standards up to date. For the month of April, we will be worshipping inside in the sanctuary (check out those windows!) observing social distance between households and mask wearing. Current guidelines have an allowance of 50% capacity, and persons who are fully vaccinated are not included in the total count. Considering this new information and our congregation’s feedback around comfort levels, we are limiting capacity to 100 persons inside and we are counting all people in that headcount, even the fully vaccinated. We realize this is more cautious that what is required, but we want to do everything we can to keep everyone safe and accommodate the greatest participation possible. We are also prepared to open the building to small church groups for in person meetings. We have not fully opened the office yet, though our office staff is preparing for increased time in the building over the summer. Our ministers and staff are available to meet with you, arrange to have the church opened, and whatever else you need - just ask! We will continue to track guidelines and numbers of cases to update our protocols. This information supersedes the original plan we created since it includes more recent developments.
Here is where we are currently:
- Worship indoors limited to 100 persons, no congregational singing, masks worn, distance observed
- Worship outdoors, not limited in number, congregational singing, masks worn, distance observed
- Church groups allowed to meet in the building: advance scheduling with Office, wearing masks, observing distance, and wiping down surfaces upon exit with provided wipes.
*This plan will adjust/change according to information from the CDC or updated guidelines from the state.
