Per the CDC, Knox County’s risk level has returned to HIGH. Thus, masks are required (ages 2+), including singers, but are voluntary for speakers. There will be no congregational singing and no food or drink served inside the building. We have two designated viewing areas, Lizzie Crozier-French for those who prefer to be with a smaller group and Room A for families with children, with masks required (ages 2+). You may also watch our services online. The full Covid policy can be viewed here-https://tvuuc.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/PolicyFinal.pdf
