10:00 AM worship:
Following the Covid protocols for Phase 3, we are are now back to holding one worship service on Sunday mornings — by registration — with a maximum of 150 people. Wearing of face masks is required (if you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you), along with social distancing, and given the guidelines, we will not be staffing Children’s church or the nursery at this time.
- Services will be held at 10:00 AM.
- Attendees will need to REGISTER to attend each week, beginning on Monday. You can do that on our home page, just click on “Register for Sunday Services”. (Also, the Registration links are emailed out each week to those receiving our email newsletter.) This allows us to control service size. Confirmations will be sent out as long as space is available.
- Attendees will need to wear a mask or a face shield. We are aware that this is a hot topic, but we hope that it will not prevent anyone from joining in worship who desires to do so at this time. If you have any questions about this please contact us.
- Face coverings and physical distancing will be necessary inside the building, with the exception of children two years of age and younger, and those who cannot remove them without assistance. (face coverings will be available for those who do not have one)
- If you have recently had a fever or shown symptoms, please stay home until they have passed.
- Access to the church will be confined to the lower parking lot doors. The upstairs will be temporarily closed.
- To observe physical distancing, rows in the auditorium have been spaced out. Please leave 3 seats between your family unit and the next family unit.
- Offering will be collected in marked boxes near the auditorium doors.
- We will be serving only water and coffee, and individually wrapped cookies.
- And we apologize to our children, but the playground will be closed during this time.
- Finally, if someone contracts Covid-19, we are asking them to contact the church and give us a list of those they were in close proximity to, so that we can contact them (this avoids concerns over government contact tracing).
Please note that our endeavor to uphold these guidelines doesn’t mean that we have deep convictions about each requirement, that we believe mask-wearing is a significant deterrent to infection, or that we are motivated by fear. Rather, we see these guidelines as the means to continue to gather together, in person. And we do this, upholding Paul’s exhortation in 1 Corinthians 10:31 “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
