COVID-19 Policies

The issue of vaccination status has arisen for us (as it has for all churches and
organizations across the province). Because there are a number of vulnerable folks in our
community, there are many who would be unable to attend without a proof of vaccination. So
for both the 9:30 am intergenerational service, and the 11:00 am traditional service we will be
requiring proof of vaccination for everyone who is eligible (12 years old and up) to receive one.

Much of this is a balancing act between folks feeling safe and being an open community. With
that in mind, we encourage families with young children wanting to attend worship to attend the
9:30 am intergenerational service. This service will be geared to younger worshippers and their
families, and it helps protect our more vulnerable participants who can feel safer attending the
11:00 am traditional service.

Furthermore, there are folks in our community who may not have been vaccinated. This could
be for a variety of reasons. And while Young United Church firmly advocates that everyone gets
vaccinated, we still want to maintain our connection with folks who have not. With this in mind,
a third service on Sundays will be added for 12:45 pm. We do ask folks who are vaccinated to
come to one of the earlier services.

It is very helpful for us to get a sense of attendance. This becomes even more important if
restrictions come into play as we enter what could be the fifth wave of COVID-19.

Please call the office (204-783-0128) to let us know you are coming
no later than the Friday before worship for Sunday services

and no later than December 23 for the Christmas Eve services.
