Letter from Bishop LeMarquand and the Standing Committee - Materials for Planning Congregational Regathering
"As you know, various states and locales are beginning to ease up restrictions around the coronavirus. Many of you are beginning to anticipate meeting again for public worship.
As we mentioned in our last letter, we are still strongly recommending and asking that all congregations in the ADGL continue to suspend in person public worship for the foreseeable future. However, we know that a time is coming when we can begin to anticipate gathering again. To assist you in your planning for the possibility of holding public worship we are sending the attached packet of materials. The documents include guidelines for what to do when regathering and tools to help you design plans for gathering again."

SERVING THE GREAT LAKES REGION
The ADGL is divided into nine deaneries (geographical regions), enabling relational and pastoral ties between churches closest to one another.
