Re-opening – Current plan is that Sunday services and faith development will continue to be virtual until end of 2020. There was some discussion about whether small activities at the church could be permitted. Consensus was that small groups (around 10 or less) could meet for specific tasks. All safety and social distancing guidelines should be followed. Regular team and committee meetings should remain on-line. Marcus will draft a message to the congregation.
