We are excited to welcome members and friends to return to in-person worship. We will hold services in the Fellowship Hall at 10:30 AM Sundays. For the health and safety of the congregation, it is important that all participants adhere to these guidelines. If you do not feel safe or do not feel able to abide by these guidelines, we respectfully ask you to stay at home and worship with us online. We love and respect your decision. The Worship Committee takes the health and safety of everyone very seriously. We have established the following measures for protection.
Pray for those unable to attend in-person. Check your temperature. Wash your hands before you leave home and sanitize before entering the building. We will have sanitizer available.
Entering Before the Service
Please remain in your cars until 10:20 AM. At 10:20 you may leave your cars and begin entering the building. The lower parking level is reserved for those with mobility concerns and the elevator is available.
We understand that fellowship is one of the most important ways we connect as a congregation. We also understand that after 7 months away many will want to reconnect before and after church; however, we ask that for the foreseeable future our members and friends refrain from fellowship prior to or after worship.
Masks covering the mouth and nose must be worn at all times when in the building.
Social distancing must be observed at all times including when entering or leaving the building and while in the building. No hugging/touching, shaking hands or bumping fists.
Upon entering the building please take your seat. Couples and families will be seated together.
Bulletins will be emailed out prior to the service in the weekly newsletter. We are asking those with smartphones and tablets to bring their devices to church to minimize hand traffic and cut down on paper usage. Another option is to print your own copy from home and take it with you when you leave. A very limited number of bulletins will be available to minimize hand traffic and possible contamination.
There will be no choir or congregational singing. There will be no responsive prayers. Please enjoy the music provided and silently read any responsive readings or prayers. We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper with separately packaged communion cups containing bread and juice, which we ask you dispose of on your way out of the building.
No offering will be collected, an offering basket will be available for those who want to leave a contribution. Please continue to send in your tithes and offerings as you have been doing.
After the Service
Please leave the building as soon as the service is over maintaining social distancing and allowing those in the back to exit first. Please dispose of trash and recycle bulletins in the appropriate bins.
