In this season of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19/Coronavirus, we are navigating how best to carry out our mission as a church family while prayerfully seeking an appropriate response to this health concern.
Here at Canby Foursquare we are submitting to the law of the land, and will continue to abide by the laws set forth by the state of Oregon in regards to Covid-19 guidelines.
With the new restrictions released by the Governor and the Oregon Health Authority, Canby Foursquare will be open starting this weekend, December 6th. We will be able to accommodate more people with the new limits set forth allowing us to have up to one hundred people in our sanctuary, and fifty people in our Patio. We will be opening both our 9:00am and our 11:00am service.
Things like wars and natural disasters and pandemics will continue and none of us should be surprised or taken aback by these sorts of trials. Jesus will be with us and working in his church even when we don’t gather in person.

Regulations For All In Person Gatherings
Ages five and up must wear a mask while indoors. We are also now capped at fifty people being allowed in our Main Auditorium. With this in effect we also have our Church Patio open for social distanced seating as well. In the spirit of Christian obedience to governing authorities (Romans 13:1-2, 1 Peter 2: 13-17) and the Christian obligation to love and care for one another (John 13:34, Romans 12:10), Canby Foursquare will require that face masks be worn by all those wishing to attend live services in the auditorium, patio spaces, as well as in our youth building. If you do not have a face mask or forget to bring one, a face mask will be provided at the lobby entrance.
We know that public health requirements bring forth a whole range of responses from people. We also understand and respect that there is a difference between requesting and requiring something be done as a condition of attending worship on Sunday. We all miss coming to church and not having to worry (at least very seriously) about getting sick. However, today we are in extraordinary circumstances where our choices can be helpful or harmful to others even if we are not feeling sick ourselves.
Here is our ask:
1. As always, if you are sick or have a serious medical condition please stay home from church. We care for you and want you safe and healthy for many years to come.
2. If you cannot abide by the face mask requirement for any reason, please stay home and connect with us on-line. We care for you and want you to be safe and healthy as well.
3. If you attend the Sunday service in person, please keep everyone safe and healthy (including yourself) by observing the face mask requirement throughout the service.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
