COVID - 19 Policies 

Off The Wall Discipleship will strive to continue our mission of making passionate disciples of Jesus even during this pandemic. We are committed to seeking continuous feedback from medical professionals and our stakeholders as we follow the procedures they have advised us to put into place.

These procedures will be followed as long as Tuscarawas County remains in Public Emergency Levels 1,2, or 3. If Tuscarawas County enters into Public Emergency Level 4, we will enter into virtual leaning until the level is lowered.   

These procedures will be followed as long as Montgomery County remains in Public Emergency Levels Green or Yellow. If Montgomery County enters into Public Emergency Level Red, we will enter into virtual leaning until the level is lowered.
