KUMC Reopening Information

Updated April 22nd, 2021

Please help us by following our protocols

 

During this past year, we have constantly evaluated and adjusted to the changing world around us. The mask mandate in the state of Texas has been lifted as of March 10th, 2021, so we want to share with you how we will respond at KUMC.

If you need help finding a location to get your COVID-19 vaccine, please contact us.

Sunday Mornings at KUMC

In April, we updated our reopening policy to allow for optional mask-wearing during all weekday activities. Because of the continued availability of vaccines, we have made the decision beginning Sunday, May 2nd, face coverings/masks will become optional for Sunday morning worship and all church activities.

We will continue to have socially distanced seating areas in the Sanctuary and The Vine worship space for each service to respect those who are more comfortable with a little extra room. In the Sanctuary, that seating is located in the outer two sections on the floor and the entire balcony.  In our Vine services, you can find that spacing in the back three rows.  In Refugio, look for the area with chairs in groupings of 2-4 with 6’ space around each set.

Weekdays at KUMC

For all weekday activities, wearing a mask/face-covering is optional.

Face coverings/masks will also be optional at funerals and weddings unless the families for which the wedding or funeral are being held desire mask-wearing

Please note The School for Little Children must follow the guidelines established by Licensing and will communicate any changes directly to our families.
