We need all hands on deck!

Salem needs your help as we anticipate reopening for in-person services and events – by this summer, we hope!

WHEN AND HOW WILL WE REOPEN?
·      Salem will reopen when state and local COVID restrictions allow indoor gatherings of up to 100 persons.
·      All persons will be required to wear face masks and practice physical distancing.
·      Hand sanitizing will be encouraged; new hand sanitizing stations are in place.
·      In worship we will be seated at a distance. Certain aspects of worship will be modified to reduce health risks.
·      Initially after reopening, coffee and refreshments will not be served or will be limited.

Please take a moment to complete this quick survey. Orientation sessions for each volunteer task will be scheduled soon. No prior experience is necessary for any role.
