HELLO PARENTS

As our city begins to reopen, we too are eager to step into the new normal of youth ministry during COVID-19. We are committed to doing so with an abundance of caution and will strive to put the health and safety of our students and leaders first. The following is a brief overview of the precautions we intend to take as we plan our programs for the Summer.

 

Staying safe will require the collaborative efforts and the feedback of every student, parent, leader, and staff member. We recognize and respect that each of us will emerge from quarantine at the pace they decide is comfortable. In that spirit, we want to assure you that our staff and leaders will support and reinforce each parents decision to allow or not allow thier teens participation in our in-person programs. For the forseeable future we will continue to offer virtual programs alongside our in-person events.

 

These are uncharted waters we are wading into and so we ask for your patience and more importanlty your feedback as we continue our mission to BE & MAKE disciples of Jesus who belong, serve, and grow.

We will conduct health screenings for each student before they enter the event.

We’re asking specifically about COVID symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat).

HIGH SCHOOL EVENTS

    Tie Dye Party | 7-8:30 PM

    We will provide plain white, cloth face masks and multiple tie dye kits. Students will be able to tie dye a face mask that they can wear to all ofour summer programming events. Students can also bring their own t-shirts, socks, headbands, etc. to tie dye. Tie dying requires gloves to handle dye bottles, so all students will be wearing gloves. This way, we do not have to worry about disinfecting dye bottles in between students.
