1. TJCAC Reopening
With indoor in person services, TJCAC will continue our health and safety practices, including pre-registration, physical distancing and indoor masking. On Mar 1, 2022, COVID-19 Public Health capacity limits and proof of vaccination will be lifted in all indoor settings in Ontario. This is great encouragement for all of us to break our habit of not meeting together in person, and for TJCAC to move from fear of COVID-19 to faith in the Lord who calls us together in person. The Elder Board continues to evaluate our practices for physical distancing, capacity limits, live streaming online, and possibly will make changes on April 1, 2022, to be announced after Mar 21, 2022.
