Policies, procedures and expectations for building use

(Updated November 16, 2020)

Indoor Gathering Guidelines

Elders, Staff and the Pandemic Advisory Committee have determined that all in-person activities (inside or outside) are paused through Dec. 8.
Sunday morning worship will also be online through the end of December. 

If you are interested in future building use, contact Angel Baum to reserve a space for your group.

Though our facility is currently closed, our church ministries are doing their work online, outside and in other creative ways. The life of the church continues, even (and especially) during a pandemic. It is good and important for the church to gather together for worship and fellowship, it just cannot happen in the ways we are used to at this time.

Please remember, we act out of love for our neighbors before our own interests, which is the way of Jesus. Our local body called Thornapple holds many opinions and we treat others with love and respect.

As much as we want it to, getting back to normal is not going to happen right away, but together we will discover what our next normal will look like.
