COVID-19 Resources

In May 2021, the Regional Church Board approved a Framework for In-Person Gatherings that the Regional Church staff, board, committees, and fellowship groups are to follow when traveling, and when hosting in-person gatherings. In early December, the Board of Directors of the Christian Church In Nebraska re-visited its previous decisions and have instructed Regional staff that attendance and participation in services and events will only be permitted so long as all participants at the service or event will be wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing. The full memo, along with the Framework, and a spreadsheet of COVID case numbers for Nebraska Counties where there are Disciple Local Churches has been posted to the Regional Church’s Website.
