Meeting guidelines

In conjunction with our mission of loving God and loving our neighbor, and in anticipation of our fall events that will draw people from various communities, Ohio Conference is requiring that masks be worn during all indoor meetings and activities, and that attendees practice social distancing. We believe that this is an easy step to take to protect each other.

These guidelines will be in place until November 14, after which time we will re-evaluate.

Thank you for showing your love to your brothers and sisters by following these guidelines.
