Dear Parent or Guardian,

As Montana moves into “Phase 2” of re-opening the state we believe it is an appropriate time to begin to bring back our student ministry at the church.

We wanted to let you know how we plan to do this so you can make the best decision regarding your student.

We plan to resume our 4:12 Student Ministries on Tuesday June 2nd for High school and Wednesday, June 3rd for Middle School with some new guidelines we will adhere to:

  • 4:12 gatherings will be capped at 50 people in accordance with our county health professionals’ instruction
  • We will provide a check-in station that will count students as well as provide sanitation for all students and leaders attending
  • We ask that if your student has had a fever or any cold-like symptoms that you refrain from sending them that week
  • If a student is exhibiting cold-like symptoms we will ask that they be picked up and head home for that week
  • Rooms at the church will be cleaned and sanitized prior to 4:12 so that we can minister in a clean and safe environment
  • On days when weather permits, we will prioritize being outside and only use the church building as is necessary in order to minimize the spread of germs
  • Masks and/or gloves will not be required of either students or volunteers
  • We will discuss healthy boundaries for students as we resume, and we would ask you do the same. We will encourage healthy social boundaries, but we cannot guarantee/enforce that strict social distancing will occur the entire evening

We believe we can resume our 4:12 student ministry in a way that honors our local health officials’ guidelines, provides a safe place for students, and allows us to continue to seek Jesus together this summer. We hope this information allows you to decide what is best for you and your family at this time.

We look forward to seeing your student at 4:12, whether that be in June or later on. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

In Christ,

Mark Resch
