The ReOpening Team is charged with the task of determining safety guidelines, precautions, and procedures in response to the COVID19 virus.  These precautions and procedures will guide the planning for worship and church programming, and the safe return to in-person worship and church activities.  The work of the ReOpening Team is guided by recommendations from the Southern New England Conference, UCC, and guidelines from the State of Connecticut, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Quinnipiack Valley Health District. 

The Church Office is open daily. Julie Schweickert, Scott Morrow and Todd Swarney are working regularly in the building.  Karlee Etter and Jeff Hutchins work in the building occasionally.  The Food Pantry is in operation, with food distribution on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10-11am.

 In person worship has resumed and the worship services are livestreamed online on Sunday mornings. Worship services can also be viewed on NHTV. Online worship services will continue indefinitely.

NHCC and community groups interested in returning to in-person meetings or gatherings in the church should contact Julie Schweickert. The guidelines and precautions for in-person gatherings in the building are similar to those required for worship.

In-person worship and programming may be suspended in the future in response to a rise in COVID19 cases, in accordance with guidance from the State of CT, Quinnipiack Valley Health District, and the CDC.
