Fragrance Allergies 

Allergens are everywhere!! Please be respectful of persons in the congregation with fragrance allergies and strive to limit the amount of fragrances you bring into the sanctuary. Fragrances can be found in lotions, perfumes, hand sanitizers, shampoos, and many other items. Persons extremely sensitive to fragrances may want to consider sitting near the front or in the sections just to the left or right to try to prevent an allergic reaction.

Prayer Line
