Phased-In Return to In-Person Worship

Pastor Peter recorded a video to tell you of the good news from the Council meeting on May 25. The Council approved the plan to return to in person worship. They have been guided by our welcome statement: “You are welcome. No exceptions.” They have also been guided by vaccination rates as the key metric. Essentially, the Council has waited until almost all ages have access to the vaccine, and we have arrived at the 70% rate for people receiving at least one dose here in Hennepin and Ramsey counties.

Here is a link to the letter. Masks will be required as we resume in-person worship for the foreseeable future.
