April Covid-19 Planning Survey Results

Protocols for In Person Spirit Gatherings

Despite COVID-19 restrictions being lifted by Government in MARCH 2022, infections still are at a high rate in our region, as shown in hospitalization rates and health care employee absentee rates. Because of this, and with the risk profiles of Visions event attendees, your Congregational Leadership Team (CLT) decided that there will be no changes made in Visions’ COVID-19 precautions for April. The protocols listed below are in line with approximately 75% of the responders (total responders 49) to the recent congregational survey completed March 28th.

Thank you for your cooperation and participating in the Covid Planning Survey. This policy will be reviewed before May. Questions or concerns can be directed to Peter Lightfoot.

2021 – Spirit Gatherings Lent-Easter

"Spring is coming! That is the promise of Lent.
The death of winter will give way to newness of life
Violence and hate will give way to love and hope for all.
It's just that spring isn't here yet.
God's new world isn't here YET..."

Join us this Lent as we hear the stories of God's Covenant Promises.
Together, we will 'bless this mess' we have made of the world
and count down the 40 days of Lent with prayer and intention.
Then we will get to work with our Creator
and be a part of God's 'new world'
promised with the Good News of Easter.
