Advisory Groups

COVID Advisory Group

Our COVID-19 advisory panel is available as a resource to congregations in formulating plans and protocols for responding safely to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bishop, staff, and COVID advisory team continue to closely monitor incoming data and collaborate every two weeks to consider the possibility of reopening our churches. Our goal is to do so as soon as safely possible. We expect to send an update the third Tuesday of each month in the Clergy and Lay Leaders email (CLL), and more frequently as updates are warranted.
