SUNDAY WORSHIP UPDATE
We have become aware that a family member of someone on staff has tested positive for COVID-19. This person was present on Sunday, July 12th at our 10:15am worship service and potentially contagious at that time. Out of an abundance of caution, our congregation is taking the following steps as recommended by the Reopening Taskforce:
Live Streaming Worship Services on July 26th and August 2nd (Click HERE to watch)
Closing church offices between July 23rd and August 9th
Staff are quarantining/getting tested individually for COVID-19
Due to the safety guidelines we implemented for worship, we believe the risk to those in attendance is low. However, if you are concerned about your health, we encourage you to reach out to your family doctor/personal physician. We are disappointed to hit pause on some of the plans we had, but we feel confident these steps are the best way for us to keep our staff and you safe.
It’s a strange time to be the church but we know even when we are physically distanced, we are united by the same Holy Spirit. Our staff is working hard from home to continue to provide pastoral care, bible studies, and carry out the work of the church. You can still reach us at the church office by leaving a voicemail or by emailing us.

HOW CAN I HELP?
Our congregation is aware of many needs because of the impact of COVID 19. We have created a response fund you can give directly to by mailing in a check or giving online at tellicochurch.com/give. We want you to know 100% of this fund will go towards food pantries, rental assistance, and utility aid to meet people's immediate needs and ensure people do not become homeless in the midst of this crisis. Our own ministry partners, including The Good Samaritan Center, and the Good Shepherd Center will benefit from your response.
