At the end of December, the Elders of Wayne Hills met to discuss the current situation related to Covid-19. Currently, we are holding one-large Sunday Morning Group for adults in the multi-purpose room on Sunday mornings. There is also a Sunday Group for Children during this time period. There is no nursery available at this time. In addition, the Sunday evening on-campus groups and family ministry discipleship have not been meeting.
After considering the overall safety of the congregation, and the recent spike of Covid-19 cases in Augusta County, the Elders decided to temporarily maintain this same position on Sunday mornings and Sunday Nights throughout the month of January. We will meet again toward the end of January to discuss the possibility of reopening and relaunching Sunday Morning and Sunday Evening on-Campus Groups. Please, know that we want to get these programs restarted as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience through this trying time. Help us maintain a church culture of wisdom and love. We ask that you continue to wear face masks and social distance when attending church activities and programs.

Where can I find more information about COVID-19?
How should I respond to COVID-19?
Though situations like these can stir up fear and anxiety, God is sovereign over all things, and our ultimate hope is found in Jesus. Although we won’t be gathering for services and events, we encourage you to stay connected to the church body through calls, texts, and online engagement. Pray for those affected by this virus as we wait for Christ to return and bring about a day without sickness, suffering, and death.
To minimize the risk of illness, here are a few practical things you can do to love your neighbor:
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
