The Elders have affirmed that starting May 1st, we will move into Phase 3, which means facility access and use will return to pre-COVID guidelines.  The Saturday evening services will be discontinued after April 3rd, however we will continue to designate a “mask” section (east wing) at the Daybreak (8:45am) service on Sundays.
