COVID-19 Updates

8/20/21 COVID-19 UPDATE:

After Council’s meeting this week (on 8/17/21), the following guidelines and discussion points, discussed and agreed upon with the Reopening Task Force last week, are now available to you.

To reiterate what was stated in last Friday's "PoP Connections" e-blast, after the PoP Reopening Task Force’s meeting last week, the Reopening Task Force and Council are asking that all who enter Prince of Peace wear a mask. This includes all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. At this time, singing at worship services will be limited solely to worship leaders.

We understand this is very disappointing, but our first priority is the safety of all who enter our doors and to help stop the spread of this deadly virus in our community. As we all do our part in Christian love and love our neighbor as we love ourselves, hopefully we will be back to normal soon!
 
Please read the Worship Policies & Building Usage document, last updated on August 10, 2021, for more information. Note that we are currently in the RED status. 
 
In the meantime, we will continue Livestreaming our worship services for you to participate in that capacity if you so choose.
 
We will continue to keep you updated with any changes to our Worship and Building Usage Policies and guidelines as they relate to COVID-19 and the Delta variant through social media, on the PoP website, through email and in worship announcements.

8/6/21 COVID-19 UPDATE:

In light of the rapidly spreading Delta variant and the guidance of the Appleton Health Dept. and other health officials to limit indoor gatherings, we are strongly recommending that all worshippers on Sunday, Aug. 8th wear a face mask and observe distancing and handwashing practices. This is encouraged even if one is vaccinated. We will be modifying our hymn-singing too. As Christians, our first priority is to love and care for our neighbors, as we care for ourselves and in that spirit we must lovingly proceed.

This upcoming week, our faith leaders will gather to determine our future plans. We will post our recommendations, as soon as they are determined, on our social media platforms and website. Let us continue in prayer for all those who are working to keep us safe and struggling with this highly contagious virus.

In Christ's Love,
Mark Steine, Council President
Pastor Jennifer and Pastor Roger
