May 18th Update

An except from Pastor Don's Journal:
I have some exciting news! Following the release of new guidelines from the CDC, the Governor of Virginia, and the City of Alexandria, our church is taking immediate steps toward an eventual return to pre-pandemic normalcy.

1. Registration will no longer be necessary in order to attend worship services. Just come.

2. Seating is open—it will be the pew of your choice.

3. Masks will no longer be required for those who are fully vaccinated. That is, those who are two weeks out from their second Pfizer or Moderna vaccination, or two weeks after one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Masks will still be required for those in the worship service, ages 3 and up, who are not fully vaccinated. We will trust you on this.

4. Masks will still be required for all adults and children in our Children’s Ministry, and for everyone else who is in our children's area, regardless of vaccination status. Our children have not yet been vaccinated, and we continue to comply with CDC guidance and state and local requirements to protect our children. More details about this will be sent to parents and Kids' Connection volunteers soon.

5. A one-time enrollment is still required before children attend on Sunday mornings. We have to know who is coming so that we know that we are prepared for them. Enrollment is available on the children's page of the website.

You have been so positive and cooperative during these long 15 months of the pandemic. I cannot thank you enough for your encouraging support.
