Due to the recent update by the Montgomery county mayor on facemask requirements, we as an eldership have determined the following for in-person gatherings at Hilldale and for Hilldale sponsored events outside the building.
- In considering that the virus is still active, and we have some members that are vulnerable, the eldership ask that upon entering and leaving the building, all in attendance wear a mask. When seated in the pew , the mask may be taken off. To cut down on droplets, please wear the mask during singing and when unable to maintain a social distance (this includes in the classrooms).
- Due to the increase of attendance, for those that feel comfortable enough, the two middle sections will have the barriers removed for the first 10 rows and the first 7 rows on the sides sections.
- When the trend from the virus changes, whether increase in cases or decrease, the shepherds will determine the arrangements as the cases are reported.
Thank you all for your patience, love, and dedication.
