Portage Chapel Hill Church is currently open for in-person worship, Sunday mornings at 10 am. The Pastors and church leadership are closely monitoring the increase in COVID cases due to the many variants, and will follow the guidance of local health officials in all decision-making. Your prayerful patience and understanding are appreciated as we navigate this difficult and ever-changing situation.
We require everyone coming for worship to wear a mask covering your nose and mouth to protect those members of our congregation who are not eligible for the vaccine or unable to receive it. We also encourage everyone who is eligible to receive the COVID 19 vaccine, but will not be checking or asking for vaccination status. The nursery will be open but there will be no concurrent programming for kids during worship. Livestreaming of worship services will continue on the Broadcast page, Facebook, and YouTube.
For the time being, we will maintain one worship service at 10 am on Sunday mornings, and worship and other groups directly related to worship will be able to meet in person at the church. We encourage other small groups to continue on ZOOM or meet offsite. If you would like the church office's help in setting up a ZOOM meeting please contact Office Manager Lisa Drzick at email@example.com or by calling (269) 327-6643. When COVID cases begin trending downward again we anticipate opening up the building to more ministry-related activities.
Portage Chapel Hill Church will continue to do its part in reducing community spread of this deadly virus. We will continue to love our God and neighbor going forward striving to do so in all we do.
Thanks and Peace,
Pastor Jess Davenport and Pastor Barry Petrucci
