At the monthly meeting on Thursday, November 19, the Board of Trustees discussed status of our facility closure due to COVID-19. Mindful of the safety of the congregation and staff, the board has decided to continue closure of the building, and continue hosting worship services, programs, and meetings online. This decision is also informed by the increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in Pierce County, as well as across the country, and guidance from the UUA. Governor Inslee’s “Religious and Faith-based Organizations COVID-19 Requirements” updated on November 16 begins the report by saying, “with continuing reports of COVID-19 outbreaks at spiritual gatherings, the Governor still strongly encourages religious leaders and communities to conduct services remotely.”
We hope you are joining us on Sundays for worship services on Zoom. If you’re not able to join us, the recordings are published on our YouTube page, and we post the recordings on the church website along with music from the services. Our programs are also offered online, and you can find information on those via the church calendar, or in the ENews.
