Recommended precautionary directives for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
UPDATE: July 1, 2021
On July 1, 2021, the British Columbia Ministry of Health issued a new order for the resumption of normal indoor gatherings as we move from a Covid-19 safety plan to using a “communicable disease prevention guide” format.
Please stay home and do not enter the church if you are experiencing any Influenza or cold-like symptoms.
· Under the new order there is no capacity limit on worship service attendance. Seating restrictions are lifted. Contact Tracing is no longer required when you enter the church.
· Singing is permitted.
· Socially gathering pre and post service is permitted.
· Hand sanitizer is available for those who wish to use it.
Mask are recommended within the building for those who are not “fully” (2 doses plus 14 days) vaccinated.
Masks are permissible for those who chose to wear them in the church building and during worship. Please be respectful of your brothers and sisters who want the added protection of the mask. Also, some people may not be comfortable at this time with reduced social distancing, shaking hands or hugging. Please respect their needs for personal space.
It should be noted that some of our members (and visitors) have not received any vaccinations which makes them susceptible to catching the virus as well as transmitting it.

We pray that the Lord will keep everyone in good health and that He will provide a speedy end to this crisis.
