During the May 2021 council meeting, Council President Andrew Stutzke presented the latest data regarding infections, CDC and state guidance, and recommended that the church fully reopen. Masking will be a personal choice, not required. Singing will return, and the building will be open with the exception of the kitchen in the basement.
This year's VBS will be a one-morning outdoor event, Saturday, July 10 from 9-11:30am at First Christian Church, 3400 Sixth Ave., Sterling. We’ll have tents set up for a variety of learning stations (music, arts and crafts, games). All PreK (age 3) through fifth-grade students are encouraged to attend. Sixth grade and older can volunteer to be leaders. More details will be coming soon!
