The New York State Department of Health’s stipulations of requiring either vaccinations or masks through Feb. 10, 2022, has now expired. As a local church body, we are no longer requiring masks and have never required proof of vaccination. However, we do suggest that attendees continue to use church-provided hand sanitizer if needed and stay home if they are sick. Covid is a real and serious virus, and we are doing our best to honor God first and foremost, follow our government’s edicts, and protect our congregants. All are welcome to attend our church services and no one will be turned away.
