On April 8, Governor DeWine signed an amended health order which clarified the social distancing guideline as it applies to religious organizations. As a result of this amended order, the elders at Parkside have updated the guidelines we have in place for social distancing.
Please note: No change has been made to the Ohio mask mandate. Masks, properly worn, are still required while inside the building.
3 Updates to Indoor Gatherings:
- Beginning this Sunday, April 18, all rows and seats in the Auditorium will be open for seating. We are greatly encouraged with this step toward a more normal worship experience, and we ask that you please continue to be considerate of your neighbor when choosing how closely you sit to others.
- All indoor ministry events will also follow the new guidelines we have in place for Sunday worship: masks required, with freedom in how you social distance.
- We ask those who are unable to wear a mask due to a medical exemption, to now worship in the Commons or via the livestream. This step will allow us to keep the Auditorium as safe as possible as we add people back into this space on Sundays.
We are grateful to the Lord for each one of you and are thankful for your attention and understanding throughout the many Covid adjustments. We recognize that this news may be met with mixed reactions, but we hope that for many, it is an encouraging step as we seek to care for the congregation and honor Christ.
