YES, we are open!
We have been physically reopened since June 14 and continue to hold our services at 30% capacity (52 in Upper Hall + 13-15 in Foyer; 45 in Lower Hall) according to local health guidelines (i.e. hand sanitizer, social distancing, using every third pew [10' distance], extra cleaning and sanitizing). Many of our other activities are beginning again as it is safe to do so.
Effective Oct 9, churches no longer have a mask exemption. This is not a recommendation but an order. However, there are exemptions for when social distancing is in effect. As a result beginning Oct 11 at MBC we will: -Require a mask when entering or leaving the premise, but not when seated (as we are already socially distanced), and when singing (upper level and lower level). -Those leading music or speaking will not be required to wear a mask as they are 4m away from the congregation. -As educational purposes seem to be exempt children and teachers in the Sunday School will not be required to wear a mask but should follow other mitigating measures when possible. -Those with health concerns and young children are also exempt.
For those who are unwell or have symptoms, have health concerns or who are uncomfortable meeting together just yet, our services will continue to be livestreamed and available through our phone in service.
