We continue to follow the Diocese’s Phase 3 requirements and our church remains open with indoor services beginning at 10:30am EST.
Office hours are Monday – Thursday, 9:00am – 12:00pm EST.

With the rise in COVID cases in our area, we continue with the following to help make our members, friends, and visitors safe when visiting Mediator:

  • Masks are required and must be worn at all times when inside the building
  • We ask that you print your name and phone number in the book at the Sanctuary entry door
  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the public areas and we encourage people to use it 
  • During this time, we also ask people to remain in their seated areas during the Passing of the Peace
  • We continue to fog the building on a regular basis
Dioceses Announce move to Phase 3

On June 11, the Dioceses of Eastern & Western Michigan announced we will enter Phase 3 beginning July 1. Mediator’s first Sunday to be fully open will be Sunday, July 4. We plan to gather outdoors and will have an Ice Cream Social immediately following the service. Watch for more information and details to follow.
