COVID-19

SPECIAL MESSAGE

Please join us for worship in the Sanctuary on Sundays at 11:00 AM!  We are following safety guidelines (masks – see statement below, social distancing, hand sanitizing) and temperatures may be taken at the door.  Please do not attend if you are not feeling well.   Nursery services will not be provided.  We continue to provide online services on Facebook and YouTube.

One of our adult Sunday school classes, the Issues Class, continues to meet on Zoom.  The Sojourner’s Class is meeting in person at the church.  The Bible Discovery Class continues to snail-mail lessons for now.  Please see the newsletter for contact information for these classes.

The congregation remains engaged during these trying times with a variety of events, including virtual Sunday worship on Facebook and YouTube, Sunday school classes, Presbyterian Women’s Circle meetings, and Bible study, among other opportunities, through Zoom.

As our church building carefully reopens, the life and work of the church continues because we are the church.

For information on accessing virtual worship opportunities, please contact the church office at office@cpcjc.org or call (423) 282-5324.

Statement on Masks

On behalf of Session and the Re-Opening Task Force:

Out of an abundance of caution, we advise that participants attending indoor activities at Covenant continue to wear masks until the risk level of COVID-19 infection is low.  The CDC guidelines relaxing the wearing of masks apply to fully vaccinated individuals.  Our informal poll of Covenant worship attendees found that approximately 20% are not vaccinated.  There are some that are too young, are allergic, or are immunosuppressed and can’t be fully vaccinated.  To determine the COVID-19 risk level, we are using the Covid Tracker website for Washington county:

https://covidactnow.org/us/tennessee-tn/county/washington_county/

We will check the website each week, and when the parameters are all in the green – low risk – zone, we will email a notice and place signs on the doors indicating that masks are voluntary.  Should the COVID-19 risk level cross back into the yellow – medium risk – zone, we will email a notice and place signs on the doors that masks are required.  Thank you.

WELCOME

We’re so glad you’re here!

Covenant Presbyterian Church gathers to worship, learn, teach, and share our lives. Our members include long-time local residents and recent relocations, who bring to our community the richness of their life experiences here and elsewhere.

JUST AS YOU ARE

If you’ve been following God your entire life,
If you are just discovering and learning about your faith,
If you’re not sure about your faith, but feel a spiritual calling or curiosity,

You are welcome here.

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you will find others here who want to walk alongside you.

Our hope is that as you join in the journey, we will come to know better a God who is active, alive, and at work in our lives.
