Reimagining Life Together
Guidelines for Reopening Buildings and Returning to In-Person Ministry
Linked below is a new document titled Reimagining Life Together. It aspires to provide guidance on the requirements and recommendations for local churches and ministry settings to reopen buildings and return to in-person ministry activities during the COVID-19 crisis.
Reimagining Life Together is a living document subject to change as new information is received about the virus and the best practices to mitigate its spread. We will periodically update this document with modest changes in the interest of perfecting this work. Pastoral leaders will be notified if and when significant changes are made. In both cases, the front page of the document will provide information noting the date of the latest revision.
Please note that the Reimagining Disaster Response document linked below was updated on September 14 to include an addendum regarding 2020 Northwest Wildfire Relief.
As they become available, additional resources will be posted below to support local church and other ministry leadership teams as they engage in the process of reimagining ministry and congregational life.
