UPDATED BVC COVID-19 POLICY FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP

As of November 7, 2021; we have resumed in-person Sunday Morning
Worship Service with a phased approach.

Our updated BVC COVID-19 Policy is outlined below for Phase 2,
effective Sunday, November 21, 2021.

In line with our vision to open In-Person worship services in stages, we want to give you an update on our BVC COVID-19 Policies.  The In-Person worship services are now open to the following individuals:

1.     All VACCINATED Adults

2.     All VACCINATED Children

3.     Any UNVACCINATED accompanying children that are able to wear a mask the entire duration of services

4.     All VACCINATED adults with underlying conditions (please weigh your risk prior to attending)

At this time, all UNVACCINATED adults are asked to continue with our online worship
services until further notice.

We are constantly evaluating our Re-opening status and will keep you posted.

In addition, please remember all attendees including accompanying children are
expected to adhere to all guidelines including mandatory masks at all times and social distancing.  If you or anyone in your family is sick or showing symptoms of illness, please remain at home for everyone’s safety. Please also refer to our BVC COVID-19 Disclosure in your decision to return to In-Person services.  We ask each person and family to please evaluate your risk in your decision to attend as we will still offer our Online Worship
Services as well for those who choose.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation
during this transition.
