Covid-19 Guidelines

These are difficult times, calling for a thoughtful, biblical, and wise response from church leaders and their congregations as policies change.

We are first called to be loving and respectful of the views of others (let each esteem others better than himself - Philippians 2:3).  We are also called to submit to governing authorities (Romans 13:1); while at the same time being mindful of government encroachment on basic human freedoms.

General Guidelines

Masks are welcome, but not required (except for activities noted otherwise). For activities that masks are required, general exceptions are allowed for those under 5 and those with a medical condition. Massachusetts guidelines also call for wearing masks in certain cases.

What if I'm sick?

Do not attend a worship service or church related activity if you have Covid-19 related symptoms that are not attributable to another cause (fever of 100 degrees or higher, cough, difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, muscle or body aches, vomiting or diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell). Instead, please consult a health care provider or consult Mass.gov guidelines for more information to determine the appropriate testing and/or quarantine response for any of the symptoms.
