Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update

Last updated September 14, 2021

In-person worship has resumed! We currently hold one meeting for worship in the meetinghouse on Sundays, with a Zoom meeting simultaneously (see below about the schedule); plus midweek meeting for worship at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, in person only.

Masks are required inside the meetinghouse. On Sundays, coffee, tea, and water are served after meeting for worship to be consumed outside.

We have upgraded our ventilation and air conditioning systems for improved safety. Internal and outside air passes through a series of seven filters with high Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value rating. It then passes through another filter and over an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation air purification system that is designed to disinfect potentially infectious viruses, mold, and bacteria, pathogens and allergens. Air scrubbers in the ductwork further purify. In the dining room and front room of the original house, two Airpura 600 Air Cleaners with high-efficiency particulate absorbing (HEPA) filters run continuously, as well as another in the second-floor rooms. Questions about these systems can be addressed to Joe Landsberger, B&G clerk

Our Sunday worship schedule will change in October.

Until the end of September: Sunday worship is held at 10 a.m. Worship is held both at the meetinghouse and online at this time. Contact the office for a link to Zoom worship.

Starting in October: Friends Forum will be held on Zoom at 9:15. Worship will be held at 10:30 a.m., both online and in person. The link to Zoom worship will remain the same. Solutions are being sought to enable Friends to attend the online Forum from the meetinghouse so they can make it to in-person worship.

Wednesday 6:30 p.m. meeting for worship will continue to be held at the same time, in person only.

We are also open for other use of the building! Committees and renters may reserve indoor or outdoor space at the meetinghouse by contacting the office.

Contact the office for a link to online worship, questions about COVID protocols, or to reserve time for a meeting in the building or on the Zoom account.

The rapid response team authorized by Meeting for Business will continue to evaluate conditions, and will make recommendations as the data changes. The current members of the rapid response team are Pete Rode, Pam Heggie, Lynn Cibuzar, Valerie Stoehr, and Paul Landskroener.
