Church Campus COVID-19 Current Status

Trusting in God as Lord of the conscience, Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church’s Session has made the following careful, conscientious decisions:
• to keep Mountain Shadows’ church facilities closed through at least January 31, 2021;
• to continue providing worship services via videos accessible on YouTube;
• to continue the curtailment of all in-person ministries (including one-on-one spiritual care visits) through at least January 31, 2021;
• to review public health realities monthly to determine whether or not circumstances have improved sufficiently to warrant changes to these closure and curtailment decisions;
• to communicate clearly and regularly with the congregation by every available means.
