In-person Worship Services Remain Cancelled
Preschool & Childcare is Open
UPDATE JUNE 10, 2020 – MESSAGE FROM SESSION –
As we continue adjusting to habits and practices required by the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be aware that the state of Delaware has issued new guidelines that allow for congregations to begin meeting again. You can find the guidelines at www.coronavirus.delaware.gov. You may also be aware that, in line with state guidelines and requirements, and with Session approval, Concord Preschool & Childcare reopened with limited enrollment on June 15.
Many of you are probably wondering what this means for Concord and are asking When will we reopen for in-person worship again? At our meeting on June 3, Session decided that the current answer is: Likely not until the end of summer at the earliest. As disappointing as that is for all of us, current data about virus transmission, as well as restrictions in the current state guidelines, make it impractical for us to gather in person at this point. It would require seriously limiting the number of people who can attend, prohibit specific categories of people from attending (65+ and those with other health issues), prohibit children from gathering with children outside their own household, and prohibit congregational or choir singing.
