Midland Nazarene COVID-19 Plan

Under guidance from the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services, Midland Nazarene will adopt the following mask and social distancing policies effective Sunday, June 27:

  • Masks are no longer required regardless of vaccination status. Masks are welcome to be worn if chosen.
  • All pews will be open for seating
  • We will return to full capacity in the sanctuary and small group rooms
  • Social distancing will no longer be required though we ask for awareness and kindness toward others’ comfort with close contact.

Direct any questions, suggestions, or concerns to Pastor James or COVID-19 Response Coordinator Chuck Cribley at Safety@midlandnaz.org or 989-488-9409.

Masks are currently not required, though continued mask wearing is welcome.

We have welcomed back children’s ministry and nursery. This is based on our ability to have adequate volunteer ratios. We know that many of our volunteers are in the high-risk category and we choose to care for each by recognizing their health as priority.

Yes, we do allow singing.

Thorough sanitation practices and cleaning take place before and after service on Sundays

  • We are now offering coffee and ask that you bring your own travel mug, help us reduce waste while cutting cost
  • Water fountains are back on and available
  • Offering baskets are available in the rear of the sanctuary. We will return to passing once our usher team is fully staffed

Like our broader church family, the members of the Leadership Team and the Re-Entry Task Force represent a wide-variety of positions, opinions, and backgrounds. Through many hours of dialog, listening, and prayer, we recognize that it’s not possible to be 100% risk free, nor to make everyone 100% happy. But we also understand that there are a significant number of people that would like to worship but are at higher risk. Our hope is that this plan represents a compromise that provides people more choices for worship, while striving to take every precaution possible to keep our congregation and staff safe and healthy while being respectful of each other.

We are excited to welcome you back into the sanctuary; however, if you are not feeling well or have been sick earlier in the week, please stay home and join us on-line.
