UPDATED PROTOCOL FOR RE-OPENING 
ST. STEPHEN CHURCH 

According to Governor DeWine’s comment that our cases are down and we have tested a proven weapon with the vaccines. There has been a 75% drop in COVID-19 hospitalizations since the vaccine became available.

The Church Council has reviewed the Center for Disease Control and Governor Mike DeWine’s COVID-19 health orders effective on June 2, 2021. Among the measures that we have adopted for St. Stephen UCC are the following protocols:

v  We are removing the requirement for face masks from our protocol. We are also removing Social Distancing Guidelines.

v  Ushers will no longer be needed to escort people out at the end of the service. However, we did decide that it is very important to have someone at the door to greet people as they come into the church on Sundays.

One important note is that those that would still be comfortable wearing a mask and social distancing themselves are welcome to continue. We just will not be requiring it in our protocol.


Memorial Day Parade

 Please join us in promoting St. Stephen UCC in the community as we honor our veterans in the Sandusky Memorial Day Parade. We are currently collecting candy to be handed out during the parade and will also be passing out church flyers. We will gather around 8:30 at our designated spot (to be announced) within the Ohio Veterans Home grounds. Typically, we are not able to park on the grounds that day so please find an alternate spot to park your vehicle. If you are dropping off participants, you may enter the Ohio Veterans Home grounds at the Columbus Ave Gate and exit via the Strub Road gate. 9:00 am is the opening ceremony and the parade will immediately follow. Candy can be dropped off in the box in the social hall.  No chocolates please!
