A day will come when self-exile from our church buildings can end. When we do return to gathering in-person we will do so in small and measured ways at first. Not all churches will resume in-person gatherings at the same time. Group sizes will be limited because we will need to follow public health and medical best practices and maintain social distancing. Some people will return to public activities only when they personally feel safe doing so, thus ministry in virtual ways will need to continue even after the pandemic is declared to be over. Major adjustments, including wearing masks, will be necessary for many reasons, among them, helping people feel safe being together. This is a time to prepare ourselves for these and other eventualities.
After reviewing recent Covid 19 data for Maricopa County the DHC Board has decided to postpone the decision of when to reopen our church until the Board Meeting on November 17,2020. If the data looks good at that time our tentative reopen date will be November 22, 2020.
