The Iowa Conference has recommended that churches pause in-person worship if numbers are at or above 15% positivity rate.  Linn county is now over 20%.  Also, the Mt. Vernon Zip code has increased in positive cases from 102 on October 25th to 221 today (November 9th).  These numbers are alarming.

With the increased positivity rates in our community, the leadership has made the decision to pause in-person worship at this time.  We will continue to weigh the evidence, and make decisions based on that evidence.

We will continue to offer Live YOUtube Worship at 9:30 Sunday mornings.  Without the time constraints we needed to follow when we were in-person, we will be able to move into a fuller worship format.

Wear masks. Social distance. Limit contact outside of your household.  And pray. All of these are acts of love.

Blessings, Pastor Terra
