Presbytery Meeting COVID Protocols

When we had planned the hybrid meeting in May things looked so hopeful that COVID was on its way out.

The Administration and Coordinating Team decided to move forward with the Hybrid meeting but scaled down the content of the day.

The Property and Insurance Team has published recommendations for meetings and gatherings considering the COVID Delta Variant.

The Presbytery meeting will be following their recommendations.
