COVID-19 Updates

Updated COVID-19 Guidelines:
Updated August 2nd, 2021

Dear St. Paul’s,

Florida has once again become the epicenter of the ongoing pandemic. As the more contagious Delta variant becomes the dominant variant of the virus in our state and local area, I want to encourage everyone to be careful for yourself and filled with care for others. Vaccines and masks remain the best way we have to protect ourselves and others from the worst of this ongoing pandemic. Please continue to pray for all those affected.

Here are changes to our COVID-19 Guidelines for gatherings in our buildings until further notice:

  1. Masks will be required when inside the Church and Fellowship Hall. Those involved in leading the service can unmask when talking from the pulpit, lectern or singing from the front of the sanctuary.
  2. Masks are not required when outside.
  3. Please stay home if you, or a household member are not feeling well.
Following Jesus’s ethic to care for “the least of these,” we are especially sensitive to the needs of vulnerable populations to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are doing everything we can to care for them, in addition to ourselves, during this time.
Please check for up-to-date national information and the Florida Department of Health webpage for up-to-date state information.
Our Florida United Methodist Conference also has useful information including the latest updates from Bishop Carter. You can find their website here.
Children & Youth-specific policies can be viewed here: COVID Plans 
As we enter this new phase of worshipping in the time of an ongoing pandemic, we will be constantly learning and adopting to the changing situations around us. Please continue to monitor our Facebook page and this web page for updates on COVID-19.
Your safety is our primary concern, and if you have any questions about our church, our coronavirus response, or Florida Conference policies and procedures during this time, please let us know. If you missed our Sunday morning worship livestream, check our YouTube channel for a posted recording of the service.
Peace and Joy,
