Countryside is taking precautions to keep our community safe and healthy for all who enter our building. We, however, cannot completely eliminate the risk of exposure. By attending an onsite activity, YOU ARE ASSUMING THE RISK that may result in exposure to infectious and communicable diseases.

 


Countryside is utilizing a five-phase approach to determine when the church is ready  to begin easing some restrictions on the settings and social interactions as in-person services begin.  The guidelines will be reviewed on a monthly basis at Church Council meetings.
