Portage Chapel Hill Church’s Guidance Board, along with the Pastors and Staff, have approved the church's reopening for in-person worship.
We ask that everyone coming for worship wear a mask 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. More than logistical information, we are so excited to be together in person worshipping together.
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. As the summer continues, and COVID cases keep trending down, we anticipate opening up the building to more ministry-related activities.
Our patience has been faithful, and we’re proud of how we’ve taken care of our community by doing our part in reducing community spread. 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
