Church Gatherings During COVID-19

Governor Charlie Baker issued a new Assemblage Guidance on March 23rd, which prohibits gatherings of over 10 people, and applies to “faith-based events.” Since we have already been abiding by President Donald Trump’s recommendation limiting gatherings to 10 or less people, this ban does not affect our current situation.

Moreover, Governor Baker, specifically includes “workers at places of worship” on the list of covid-19 essential services to which the assemblage limit does not apply. In light of this, we will continue to gather in small groups of 10 or less people, while observing the CDC guidelines for sanitizing, disinfecting, and social-distancing.

If any of the below criteria applies to you, instead of joining us in person we encourage you to join us via Zoom! Just click the Zoom buttons below to call in.

  • You are a healthcare provider caring for patients affected with COVID-19

Sundays

For Sundays, in addition to Zoom, we will gather in 4 different homes for in person worship for those who would like to meet! These locations will follow the CDC’s guidelines for COVID-19 protocol. These include:

  • All homes will be capped at 10 people
  • Practice social-distancing, at-least 3 feet (1 meter) apart, ideally 6 feet (2 meters)
  • Disinfect shared surfaces both before and after our gathering
  • Ask everyone to wash their hands thoroughly with soap immediately upon arrival
  • Have hand sanitizers and/or anti-bacterial hand wipes available onsite
  • Avoid sharing drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, dishes, towels, or other items
  • Serve all food and drinks, if any, individually
  • Cover your coughs or sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve (not with your hands, and wash your hands immediately after

If any members of the 4 home locations show any symptoms, meetings will cease at their home on Sundays.
