OUR REGATHERING AT MVC Working Together to Stay Healthy
Our desire to get back together, in a physical way, has been the longing of so many of us. We want to make this happen as quickly and effectively as possible so we can give everyone who plans to return right away a good but safe experience. Near the end of May, the Governor lifted the restrictions for churches limiting them to ten people and gave guidelines for houses of worship. These are only guidelines and not law or mandates. We believe there is much wisdom in these guidelines and used them as a starting point for a plan to reopen. We believe this plan is in the best interest of our people, for their spiritual, physical, as well as emotional health.
