Health & safety Protocols

            In the gospel of Matthew 22:34-40, Jesus teaches that the greatest commandment is to love the LORD our God with all of our heart, soul, and mind. Jesus also teaches us that loving our neighbor as ourselves is just as important as loving God. The Roseville Presbyterian Church is committed to loving the LORD, our God, and our neighbor.

         This one-pager outlines our efforts to safely return to in-person worship into the Roseville Presbyterian Church sanctuary. As you join us in worship, please receive this guide as an obedient and faithful response to Jesus’ command to love God and neighbor.
