1. TJCAC Reopening
While following all of Ontario’s updated COVID 19 public health measures and advice detailed in our safety plan, starting Apr 1, 2022, the following changes for indoor services are in effect at TJCAC:
– capacity limits and physical distance mandates have been lifted
– pre-registration for attendance is no longer required
– other protective measures, such as mask/face covering requirements, hand sanitizing, and passive screening remain in place
TJCAC encourages all attendees to meet in person for the Lord calls us together, and we will reassess our indoor policies and procedures monthly to support in person services.
The Church Kitchen will reopen to encourage in person services starting Apr 1, 2022 and all bookings for use will be made through the kitchen ministry representatives of each congregation. To support this reopening, all interested attendees who want to obtain a Food Handling Training Certificate are to contact Deacons Margaret and Andy Pak. The course is expected to cost ~$40/person. TJCAC will subsidize the cost of training for those who serve in the kitchen ministry.
