Worship is live! 

Effective immediately -  Small groups are welcome to meet physically on the Church Campus, with recommendations, not restrictions.

Any public meetings held in faith-based settings that have a worship component are exempt from the mask mandate and proof of vaccination requirement. In the view of Larry Schram, this would include small groups.  

However, an organized event such as a reception, celebration of life reception, or other events that do not have a worship component, does require attendees to provide proof of vaccination and wear masks. 

We strongly encourage our attenders to get vaccinated, wear masks in all settings unless eating/drinking, make sure people who are ill do not attend worship services, and support those who are not yet vaccinated to participate remotely.

Small Groups
How meetings will look at WVBC
  1. Room Limits are lifted

    - Please allow space and place for those who are still most comfortable with some separation between themselves and others.
  2. Masks are not required

    - We will continue to have masks available in the rooms and encourage anyone to feel free to wear one if this makes meeting together more comfortable for you.
  3. Coffee and tea may be served

    - Groups will need to provide their own milk or cream until we reopen for Sunday worship.
    - Adherence to our pre-covid expectations and practice is required: cups must be washed and put away
  4. Food is allowed again

    - Adherence to our pre-covid expectations and practice to clean up after any group meeting is required for the privilege of using the room and space.
    - Vacuum, wipe counters and run dishes through the dishwasher.
Please Note:
General Disease and Safety Protocols Pre-Pandemic continue to apply
  1. Stay home if you are ill, to prevent the spread of colds and flues in our community.  This includes fever, sneezing, and coughing.
  2. Hand washing is encouraged as a proven general, healthy practice that inhibits the spread of sickness.
  3. Be kind and respect the comfort of others.  

Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests, but each of you, to the interests of the others.  Philippians 2:3b-4
