Healthy Church Update —

16 March 2022


Per the Blue Ridge Health Department, our geographic area level of Covid infections has declined to a medium status. This is a big step in the right direction!

Pursuant to this news, the PRG committee met on Tuesday and has made the decision to make mask-wearing optional inside the church. This includes the sanctuary and all the various other meeting rooms.


We ask the following of you:

  1. Observe the summery pool noodles which will help protect vulnerable folks in our church community by reminding us all to put some space between ourselves and our neighbors!
  2. Vaccination is, of course, strongly encouraged if you are eligible to receive it.
  3. If you are feeling unwell, PLEASE stay home.

Let us all rejoice in the fact that Covid does finally seem to be ebbing for us.


The FUMC Nursery for children under age three will not be offered for the next few weeks as we wait for the current wave of COVID variants to settle down.

We will be back and please know that your children are ALWAYS welcome in the worship services!

Thank you for your continued care for your neighbors and your patience.

If you have concerns, feel free to contact The Post-COVID Re-entry Group
(formerly The Healthy Church Team)
