**Early on in the pandemic, we encouraged congregation members to register in "pods" of friends and family who regularly saw each other in an effort to increase the capacity in the Worship Center during Sunday services. With an increasing number of our congregation members vaccinated, we see another opportunity to increase our capacity.
Going forward, when you register for Sunday services, you will have the option, if you choose, to note that you are fully vaccinated and are comfortable sitting closer than six feet to other people who also are fully vaccinated.
