Updated COVID-19 Protocols
We are following Shepherd of the Valley's lead in using COVID protocols based on the COVID Act Now WA County website.
Masks Encouraged and Optional - Due to a "low risk" for community transmission of Covid in Washington County, we moved to a "masks encouraged and optional" practice for our worship services and gatherings at SOV.
Additional details for the congregation:
Stay home if sick or been near someone who is sick
Wear a mask, N95 is recommended. We will have extras at the church.
Practice social distancing
No reservation is needed
Communion will be part of our service. It is individually wrapped and there will be a gluten-free option.
No Sunday Morning Zoom Worship
Due to our hybrid service on Saturday afternoon, we will not have our typical live Zoom Sunday morning worship.
If you can't join us live on Saturday (in person or on the Livestream), we invite you to check our YouTube channel for a recording of the service from Saturday and watch when it is convenient.
We will be back on Zoom next Sunday.

Benevolence Team Update Dec 2022
What is the Benevolence Team?
The Benevolence Team is responsible for proposing the recipient(s) for our quarterly benevolence giving.
How do we arrive at the amount to donate?
The benevolence fund amount is based on general giving, 4% of general giving is calculated each quarter. The Benevolence team then meets to discuss needs in the community and make a designation for the special gifts. Your giving to ChristChurch also impacts local organizations with financial gifts.
2022 Contributions and Recipients:
Q1: Greater Good NW to assist with housing applications that will benefit our neighbors $938
Q2: Safe Place Eagle Scout Project
Q3: Thanksgiving Baskets $2035.00
Who is on the Team?
There are about 10 volunteers on the team.
How can I get involved?
The team meets on Zoom and via email. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Rachael.
