In addition, if someone has been diagnosed with COVID or a communicable infectious disease, they should refrain from attending in person services for an incubation period recommended by the CDC.The same for being around someone with a communicable infectious disease or who has traveled internationally.
Note: Saturday services will be dress down services (similar to midweek)
Glory Phi God is now open for youth service Sundays at 11am in Room 620. All youth grades 6th - 12th are welcome to attend. They'll hang out with friends and hear a message - just for them - all while sporting their PPE and social distancing!
