Building Openings. Governor Murphy has extended the executive order to close all business including churches through June 5 and this order may be extended further. GNJ is working on guidelines and expects them to be available by the end of May. Our goal is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ while flattening COVID-19 and ensuring there are zero infections spread by United Methodist activity. Every congregation will use and further develop the guidelines to meet this goal through your congregation.
