Dear Church Family,

Our Task Force is establishing procedures, rules, and guidelines for a phased return to in-person church. Our plans will roughly follow the Restore Illinois Plan, currently in “Phase 3”.  We anticipate moving to a modified “Phase 4” on July 5—later than Illinois, but allowing staff time to put appropriate measures in place. While more access and in-person gatherings are being planned for phase 4, we will introduce those gradually with health and safety in mind. We are so grateful for your continued faithfulness and patience.
