Being the church during the pandemic has challenged even the most informed and dynamic church leadership. What is safe? How do we minimize risk? How do we connect as a church body and meet the needs of our community without jeopardizing the health of our most vulnerable members?
Come to hear up-to-date information from Dr. Jeffrey R. Martin, Medical Director of Lancaster County Contact Tracing Program, regarding the trajectory of the pandemic, vaccine distribution, and what to consider prior to planning in-person gatherings.
