Covid-19 Statement

Reviewed and approved by Session

Effective 9/20/21


The Session and staff respectfully requests the below precautions for on site activities at East Main Church:


Worship Services:

  • Those who are able wear face coverings when entering and leaving the building, with the freedom to remain covered or not in the sanctuary. 
  • Those who choose not to wear a face covering in the sanctuary refrain from sitting in pews designated for those who choose to do so. 

J.A.M. Children’s Ministry & Mid-Week Children's Groups: 

  • Children and adult volunteers wear face coverings for check in and pick up times. When they arrive in the classroom children will be asked to abide by their parents’ wishes with respect to face coverings.
  • Children’s ministry leaders make every effort in planning and execution of classes and groups to ensure that children are not within 6 feet of others generally, and certainly not for more than 10 consecutive minutes.

Youth Ministry (6th-12th Grade) :  

Students and leaders who are able to do so wear face coverings when entering and exiting the building, with the freedom to remove them when socially distanced if they should so choose.  

Adult Groups:

That each group’s designated leader, in consultation with group members, decides what their group will do with respect to face covering, social distancing, and possible online meeting options; and that these standards be reviewed periodically. 

Please refrain from attending if you feel ill, are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 14 days. Please keep yourself informed about the most current recommendations of the CDC and other institutions and make decisions you believe are best for others and yourself in this changing situation. We appreciate your generous patience in this fluid matter.
