In May, the Session of St. James Presbyterian convened a task for to prepare for the reopening of our facilities with COVID-19 safety procedures in place. Using guidelines set in place by the State of Washington, the Whatcom County Health Department, and Northwest Coast Presbytery, the task force compiled two documents (see below) that provide a framework for our church’s reopening.

These documents are intended to guide us as we move closer to reopening our facilities and will remain “evergreen” as new advice is issued from our state and local governments and the governing bodies of our church.

These documents were updated on January 14, 2021, to reflect new guidance from the State of Washington.
