Two important resources for church leaders.
- UPDATED COVID-safer Guidelines: Throughout the pandemic, the Wisconsin Council of Churches has provided wise and helpful guidance for churches across the U.S. facing the increasingly difficult balance between public health and pastoral needs. In response to new CDC guidelines and COVIDActNow.org metrics, the WCC’s newly released resource, The Needs of the Saints: Returning to Church 4.0, invites churches to scale their mitigations up and down as conditions change. An Executive Summary of the document with revised tables for “Levels of Concern” and recommended corresponding mitigations can be found HERE.
