Update December 13, 2020

Dear Nazareth Family,

Grace to you and peace!

This past week, two of our Facility Team Members from the same household tested positive for COVID and are quarantining now. One other Facility Team member has also tested positive.  Recognizing that this impacts half our total Facility Team (and their ability to carry out normal as well as COVID cleaning duties) and out of an abundance of caution for the remainder of our staff and the people we serve, we will close the building today on Sunday, December 13 at 3:00 p.m. through Sunday January 3.  

This partial closure will not include “essential” operations, such as Sunday and Christmas Worship services (though access points and areas will be restricted), Blessed Beginnings, Christian Crusaders, the Food Pantry, next Friday’s Allen College of Nursing Graduation Ceremony, and 2 small already scheduled family-only weddings and a family-only funeral. The blood drive scheduled for Thursday, December 17, is cancelled.

During this time, to avoid the necessity of normal cleaning and possible exposure, we have asked that all staff who can possibly do so work from home and either postpone scheduled meetings or conduct any scheduled meetings via Zoom.  If you need to reach our pastors or any staff members during this time, they can still be reached via email, phone, or text messages and that contact information is available on our website at  

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to care for one another and keep one another safe during these extraordinary times!

In Christ,

Pastor Brian King, Senior Pastor 

Angie Rath, Nazareth Administrator
