Camelback Open for Public Worship

Dear Camelback Family and Friends,

The church board recently voted to resume public worship services on February 13. We are now open each week for in-person Sabbath School @ 9:30am and worship service @ 11:00am.

Please note that we still encourage all who are in the CDC’s vulnerable and high risk categories to continue worshiping with us online from home via our website, YouTube channel, and Facebook. While vaccines are currently being made available to the community, the rollout is slow. It will be months before everyone who chooses to receive one of the vaccines to actually obtain one. As we expect the rollout to remain slow, we will continue requiring the observance of our pandemic protocols in place. This provides a measure of safety that will allow us to gather and worship together while we wait for herd immunity to take place.

We look forward to having you worship our Lord, Jesus Christ, each Sabbath. Our congregation adds so much value to the worship experience and meets the spiritual and emotional needs in many of us who benefit from personal connections with members and friends.

Thank you!

Pastor John Stanton
