Health and Safety Protocols for Bell Ministries
We welcome all bell ringers willing to follow the Gary Church guidelines. Adults and children 12 years and older are required to be fully vaccinated. Per state mandate, masks are required at all times. In addition, we ask that you stay home if you don't feel well or have any symptoms, no matter how slight. We will be rehearsing in the Sanctuary to allow safe distances between people.
