While the work of the church persists through our members caring for those who grieve and speaking with the prophets’ passion for our deeply fractured world, the work of reopening the building continues.
A task force of leaders within the congregation joined several staff members to begin nimble and comprehensive planning. Yes we strive to both standards. Scott Bondurant, Mac Clinger, Jim Fritz, Scott Fowkes, Tom Lillard, Isabella Raynal, and Katie White are joined by Christine Hides, Silvi Pirn, John Sharp, and me from staff. We are also advised by AJN leaders, senior staff, and executive committee members.
The scope of our task at Kenilworth Union, under the guidance of our state, the CDC, and the wisdom of other organizations, will identify the processes, people, and building’s needs for reopening. We will develop protocols for how to gather in-person at any of our buildings and at any events or ministries held off-site. Our focus includes equipment, cleanliness standards and practices, protocols to welcome the various people who visit our building, physical distances, and all the details to ensure we offer a healthy and secure reopening.
In the meantime please remember, the building remains closed, with the exception of staff, and those involved in worship.
We are all anxious to pursue serving, worshiping, and gathering in fellowship. Please let us know of your concerns and ideas.
