November 3 Statement on In-Person Worship

Statement to the Congregation of Portage Chapel Hill Church - November 3, 2020

Portage Chapel Hill will always be an accessible place to gather and worship. However, due to the recent increase in cases of COVID-19 it has become clear that we must once again restrict access to our facilities. We are committed to maintaining a safe environment for our congregation and our community.

Starting today we will begin a week-long wind-down of the scheduled in-person meetings and gatherings in our church facility. Starting on November 8 we will no longer be offering in-person worship for our congregation and will close our indoor facilities for meetings and gatherings. We will continue to offer our online worship service created by our talented worship team. As for now, socially distanced masked outdoor meetings are permitted on the Portage Chapel Hill grounds.

We will continue to respond to this pandemic in a thoughtful data-driven manner and will continually evaluate our strategy. We ask for your understanding and support in the challenging weeks and months ahead. God’s love endures.

The Guidance Board and Pastors Barry Petrucci and Jess Davenport
