Due to the upgrade of Montgomery County Covid-19 community level to High:
– Mask will be required indoors (public place) regardless of vaccination status
– Individuals with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with Covid-19, should wear a mask; Isolate and quarantine/stay home (minimal of 5 days); and wash your hands often (if soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer)
If you are showing any symptoms, even minor like a headache, sore throat, etc., please get tested before engaging with NSM body.
Good day God’s People,
For you, who join us in person, Thank you. It is with great honor I serve you and as a health care professional keep you safe.
The RSVP will soon no longer be required or necessary. In other words, it is going bye, bye; effective, Sunday, March 20, 2022.
We will continue to use the front door as the only entry on Sunday morning and come in the right door of the sanctuary. You may exit out either door of the sanctuary and the church.
As of now mask are required in NSM because: (1) CDC continues to recommend them in indoor gatherings; (2) Only 58% of Ohioans are fully vaccinated and less than that have received their booster. In Montgomery County the number is less than 52%; and (3) we do have some worshippers with compromised immune systems.
Mask…face coverings will become optional, in the near future.
I ask that we treat each other with love and respect. Respect their personal space. What do I mean by that: I am going to use myself as an example. I work in a public place around a lot of individuals and to keep you safe, if you want a hug from me … please ask. I am not going to assume it is ok. Oh, however, if I feel like you need a hug, I will ask….”is it ok for me to give you a hug.”
You will be seated as you enter the sanctuary from the far-left side to the right, from front to rear.
The Ministers, Elders, and Deacons (with their families) will be on the front rows. They will be the only ones with a name card on their seats, (temporarily). Distance between individuals will get lesser. Meaning instead of seating every other row it might be a seat or two between families, on every row. As our families come back and we fill God’s house, let’s do it, in and with joy.
If there are any concerns and/or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me, 937.864.0211(h) 937.241.1688 (c).
2022 – Better Together
Due to another surge of COVID-19 cases, we will delay reopening our in-person NSM Sunday Morning Worship Services. We will continue our Services on Zoom and Facebook.
Great is our God. He has kept us by the power of His mighty hand. We have seen His mighty works manifest in our midst. We are grateful God has afforded us opportunity to meet online, and in-person these last few months. In our virtual, and in our in-person experiences, we have felt the hand of God touching and encouraging us. He has caused us to triumph, even during a season of adversity.
During these tumultuous times, we have made safety our top priority. In the last few weeks, hospitalizations have increased, we are seeing crisis points in some regions of our state. The rate of COVID positivity, has reached levels we have not seen in months. This Omicron variant, though apparently milder than the original virus, is still causing devastations. We must stay the course as we are being vigilant and proactive.
It is for this reason; we are temporarily ceasing our in-person worship at the church. The only people allowed (2-weeks) will be those persons necessary to broadcast our platforms. We are considering those people as essential personnel.
I speak forthrightly, in saying, this is a temporary status for our church. During the next two weeks we will reassess our circumstances. I am confident that God will continue to provide us, with what we need, just when we need it. Until then, when we can meet, without masks… let us heed the advice of the medical experts.
We will see you online for our dynamic services on Sunday and Tuesday for the next 2-weeks!
