COVID-19 Updates

As a precautionary measure, our building will be closed until further notice. We are closely following the recommendations of the CDC, Wisconsin Department of Health, & the Milwaukee Presbytery and will update this page as things evolve. If you need assistance during this time, please contact us and/or visit our Facebook page

In lieu of in-person worship, we have our weekly worship service at 10:30am via Facebook Live. An archive of our worship services is available on the virtual worship page of our website.

While Wisconsin has improved in one area, it has regressed in another; we have still only met 3/6 of the criteria. We discussed feedback from the congregation regarding our letter earlier this month, continue to clean out the unnecessary items in the church, and we continue to discuss the 3 items listed below from last week's meeting.  

Updated June 22nd, 7:00pm

To-date, Wisconsin has only met 3/6 of the gating criteria we need to arrive in phase one of the Badger Bounce Back Plan. While we wait for Wisconsin to be in Phase Two to open our building and worship in person, the task force continues to meet weekly and is actively working to get prepare for our reopening. We are currently:

  • Pursuing new A/V equipment needs to simulcast worship in the fellowship hall to maintain social distancing and allow for continued online worship for those who chose to do so.
  • Discussing directional & spacing signage.
  • Rearranging the building to accommodate our needs when we return. 

Updated June 15th, 7:00pm

This week, the task force focused on: Investigating A/V equipment needs for simulcasting worship in the fellowship hall when we start worshiping on-site again. Reaching out to the worship committee to begin discussion of modified responsibilities for ushers and greeters. And began cleaning up in the building, putting away items unnecessary for in-person worship. 

Updated June 8th, 7:00pm

The task force's recommendation is to open when the statistics show that Wisconsin is in Phase Two of the Badger Bounce Back Plan (see link below). A letter is being sent to the congregation with more detailed information regarding Faith's plan to reopen. Read the letter here.

Updated June 1st, 7:00pm

A task force was formed on May 28th and will meet weekly. The purpose of the task force is to evaluate the current guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the Milwaukee Presbytery, and from the Center for Disease Control regarding group gatherings. Also, to determine the process needed for reopening the church for worship services, meetings, outside groups that utilize our building, and other onsite events once reopening the church is deemed feasible and responsible. Lastly, planning for continued monitoring and responding to the evolving situation, to ensure that we can continue to spend time together in person safely.
