Back to the Building
We have returned to inside, in-person worship! The session asks that we follow these guidelines:
-Masks while in the building
-Social distance (every other pew will be roped off)
-Outside, masks optional for the fully vaccinated
We will have congregational singing and an outside narthex under the portico for after church mingling!
The session acknowledges that some may be surprised and/or disappointed that we are requiring masks for those who are fully vaccinated. They made this decision for various reasons:
- As a sign of support for our families with young children who cannot be vaccinated
- Pastoral care for those who have chosen not to be vaccinated
- Rise of the Delta variant
If you have a medical reason why you should not wear a mask and are fully vaccinated, you are welcome to go without a mask inside the building. We wear masks and socially distance not necessarily because we need these things to be in place, but in order for others to feel safe, comfortable and welcome.
Summer Road Closures
If you drive either north or south on I-71, you will experience some road closures as you return to church for the first time.
The Broad Street exit is closed.
Other options are:
-Either take Main St. to Parsons Ave. to Broad St.
-Or, take the Spring Street exit north of the church. The part of Long Street you need to get to BSPC is now closed, so
follow the detour signs off Long St. to Hamilton Ave. to Mt. Vernon Ave. to 17th St. to Broad St. Then reverse it to access I-71 again.
-Take Leonard Ave exit and follow detour signs for Broad Street. Build in an extra 5 minutes for travel time.
When in doubt, follow your GPS and wind your way around to find us!
