In-person worship is back on Sunday's at 10 AM!
It has been a difficult year for everyone, and it is exciting to be returning to the sanctuary, connecting with the spirit of God and seeing dear friends. For those who prefer/enjoy worshiping at home, the service will be live-streamed every Sunday, also at 10 AM. The preparation for a safe and sacred return to worship is no small task, and we ask for your patience, and hope you will offer suggestions as we learn together how to handle the technology and the logistics.
What to Expect When You Return to Church
First of all, the health and safety of participants will require us to do things differently—at least initially. Here are some details:
You will be required to wear a mask.
Entry will be through the chancel door on the north side of the sanctuary.
You will be asked to sign in upon arrival so we have a record of people gathering.
Social distancing will be honored and the ushers will assign you to a pew--probably not your “usual” spot… just think of it as a fresh perspective.
Arrival prior to 10 o’clock hour is important because everyone needs to be seated and settled as we begin transmitting the service on You Tube. Please turn off all electronic devices.
Children are welcome!! There will be no nursery care or Children’s Church initially. There will be no printed bulletin. The order of worship, hymns, responsive readings, and prayers will be on the screens in the front.
You are welcome to sing and participate in the responsive readings (softly).
We will not “Pass the Peace” or offering plate. A basket will be available as you exit if you wish to drop off your offering.
Ushers will direct you to exit right after the service, and--here is the tough one: we ask that you refrain from hugs and handshakes as there is still a virus around us. We will have a time of fellowship outside so please do not congregate in the foyer or in the sanctuary. (For those who worship virtually, our Zoom fellowship time after the service will continue!).
Bathrooms are available and we ask that they be occupied by only one person or family at a time.
Church won’t be the way we remember it for quite a while. We can be assured that God is present, even as we learn new ways to worship. Welcome back!!!
