IN PERSON Worship Information

Updated February 10, 2021 

The leadership of East Brainerd continue to be prayerful about how we are able to gather on our campus again. With guidance and recommendations from city and state officials, local health care experts, and as well as a team of East Brainerd medical, health and school administrative, and business professionals we have designed a plan for our church building to be open for in-person worship times. We know that each family member and guest who attends East Brainerd is unique and we ask that you make the best judgement for yourself and your family when it comes to your attendance and how you will engage with us as we reopen. 

We will continue to monitor the situation at a local or state level and we will adjust accordingly.  At this time, in person worship will happen with current protocols listed below.  We appreciate the grace you can share to all during this time.
