How to Worship Safely During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives, including how we worship. As the pandemic shifts, when is it safe for communities of faith to gather again for worship? We discuss this and other questions with a diverse panel of Mid-South faith leaders and a local public health official in our first Zoom Q&A. Watch the Q&A.

Recommendations for Safe Faith-Based Gatherings During COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, guidelines about safe gatherings, such as worship services and events like weddings and funerals, continue to change. To keep up with the latest public health recommendations for your congregation and community, please refer to the following public health agencies’ websites.

Recommendations for Community Organizations Sheltering the Homeless

People without permanent housing can be especially vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19. Their risks and challenges vary greatly depending on where they’re sheltering, their access to sanitation facilities and their ability to care for their personal hygiene. The following information can help answer their questions about the disease and provide guidance for community organizations and agencies caring for them.

Camp Day2Day Virtual Diabetes Camp for Kids

If you missed our virtual Camp Day2Day with the Center for Courageous Kids last month, that’s OK. You can still join us virtually for our camp for kids with Type 1 or 2 diabetes. Register here and join us today for camp.

It’s Not Too Late to Take the 2020 Census

The U.S. 2020 Census is still open. If you haven’t completed the census yet, please take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaire. The results will determine how much federal funding our community will receive, which can affect school programming and lunches, road repairs, public transportation, Medicaid and other important programs. Go to www.my2020census.gov to make sure you’re counted!
