Chapels are open for in-person services and activities. Many COVID-19 mitigation measures are in place to keep the community healthy, including: 
  • Face masks are required.
  • Social distancing and 50% capacity maximum attendance is in place. 

If you are feeling ill, have a fever, or have been in contact with a COVID-19 positive individual, please stay home. It may sound like a lot of restrictions, but these measures will allow everyone to continue meeting safely in person. 

For those not ready to return to in-person services just yet, some chapel worship services will be live streamed. The RSO will continue to provide other virtual opportunities for personal worship.  Visit the  Facebook page, as well as the  YouTube Page, where you will find a diverse library of sermons, music, prayer, and other resources to support your personal faith practices.
