 COVID-19 Response

As we respond to the rapidly changing COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, please be assured that we are taking all the recommended precautions here at the United Parish including:

  • the church building is closed. We are not holding any in-person worship services. Our Sunday morning 9:45 service will be live streamed from our sanctuary. Because Pastor Lourey travels a distance to serve our community, our sanctuary is the safe and neutral place where our production team can gather to produce the streaming video and is open only for these essential services. 

  • everyone is encouraged to wash hands frequently and stay home other than for essential  trips 

  • when the weather allows we will be opening windows to allow fresh air flow through the building

  • the Early Learning Center classes and After School Program will be closed at least until May 31. We are monitoring and following the guidelines put forth by the governors office. 

  • All in-person groups have been cancelled, postponed or moved on-line.

Please check the United Parish website  calendar and social media platforms for up to date information as we navigate this ever changing situation. 

 

Here is what you can to to help:

  • Tell us if you’re going to be staying home because you think you might be sick—we’ll want to pray with you.
  • Wash your hands often and encourage others to do so
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Follow us on facebook and Instagram for up to date news about services and events at the United Parish.
