The Session reaffirmed that its prior decision to close the building until Sept. 12 will remain in place. The issue will be revisited again on or before the next meeting Aug. 17 to consider any changes in governmental policy or CMPC Reopening Task Force recommendations that may occur in the interim.

Other announcements:

  • The Christ Memorial Christian Preschool Board unanimously voted to postpone reopening until sometime in January. The Session agreed to support their decision.
  • The CMPC Reopening Task Force will distribute a survey to church members to ask how they’re faring during the pandemic and to get feedback on returning to the Sanctuary and participation in virtual worship services.
  • The Session voted to place a temporary moratorium on the use of the church grounds by outside organizations. This decision does not affect the church’s Scout troops.
  • The Session approved celebrating communion during online worship again, possibly in August. Details to come.
