SoPinesUMC is updating our in-person COVID guidelines based on the guidance from the CDC and NC Gov. Roy Cooper.

We respectfully ask that you continue to wear a mask upon entering & exiting the building for worship and only remove it once seated for worship if fully vaccinated. Additionally, we ask that you continue to wear a mask suggested by the CDC for any unvaccinated persons, including children 5yrs and older.

Seating without social distancing will now be available while still maintaining some sections with social distancing to meet the comfort level of any worshiper.
