Unfortunately, COVID cases are on the rise again in Lancaster County. This has led to a dramatic increase in hospitalizations and deaths. This week, the Lancaster County Health Department announced a reinstatement of the mask mandate for indoor events throughout the city/county. This mandate goes into effect on August 26 and applies to all people, despite vaccination status. As you join us for worship or church activities at Southwood, here’s what you can expect:
- Starting August 26, all attendees will be required to wear masks. Attendees are also encouraged to allow distancing between family units, whenever possible.
- Communion will continue to be administered to the congregation in the pews during the worship service. Attendees will pick up supplies upon arrival. (1st, 3rd & 5th Sundays).
- Online worship will continue to be offered each week on Southwood’s website on the Worship page and Facebo
- Southwood's cafe will move outdoors (weather permitting) serving donut holes, coffee, lemonade and water.
