Big News: the time has come!

If you’ve seen the most recent update to New Jersey covid restrictions, then you know that as of this Friday, the mask mandate and the social-distancing mandate have been lifted for a number of venues, including churches.

Up until this point, the biggest barrier to moving indoors for Sunday worship has been kids. We simply haven’t had the space to responsibly provide Park Kids indoors while maintaining social distancing. But now the social distancing mandate has been lifted, which begs the question: What does this mean for Park?

It was great to see so many of you for yet another gorgeous Sunday morning of worship! It was especially fun to kick-off Park Kids for the first time since the pandemic hit. I want to give a big THANK YOU to all our staff and volunteers who are once again helping to create safe and fun environments where kids can learn to know and follow Jesus. The journey back to normalcy has been slow, which is why every single step forward is important.

Speaking of steps forward, the recent updates to the CDC and state guidelines are encouraging, and they also raise questions for Park’s own safety guidelines for worship. With this in mind, I’d like to share an update:

About re-opening…

Dear Park Family and Friends, I have a vivid memory of one morning last March. I was eating breakfast at Americana Diner with my family and in-laws who were about to leave after a brief visit. The news anchors on the flatscreen TVs were consumed with the rapidly spreading coronavirus. I was consumed with the question of what this would mean for Park. That upcoming Sunday became our first Park@Home. Despite the adaptability and excellence with which our staff were able to pivot (special shoutout to Matt Agresti), after making the decision to move worship online, I remember thinking to myself, “I hope this doesn’t last more than a month.” And nearly one year later, here we are.
