We're excited to reopen our church to worship on Sunday mornings! Please register by clicking the button below. Registration closes every Thursday at noon.
On Sunday, July 19, we will return to in-person worship in the sanctuary. Here are the details.
Services times will be 8:30 and 11:00. The doors will open 30 minutes ahead of time. To maintain appropriate social distancing, we have to limit attendance to 75 per service. We ask that everyone make reservations for the service time of your choice. We will put registration information on the website and send it out via email by the beginning of next week. If we have more than 150 people who want to attend, we’ll add a service. My prayer is that we have so many people who want to come that we have to schedule several additional services!
Please enter the sanctuary either through the narthex or the courtyard entrance. We’ll ask you to leave the same way. As you enter, please move to one of the registration tables. A volunteer will register your presence and check your temperature. Please allow an usher to seat you. We will have a carefully planned seating pattern so that people other than persons living in the same household remain at least six feet apart. Bulletins will be placed in the pews ahead of time to indicate available seats.
For the first two Sundays, children will remain in the sanctuary with their parents. Activities will be provided for those who want a lesson and activities for their children. Nursery services will be available beginning August 2 and will be designed based on state guidelines for day care centers.
We will disinfect the sanctuary between services. We will also have plenty of hand sanitizer available for those who would like to use it.
We need your help so that we can worship together in as safe a manner as possible. We need you to wear a mask when you are in the building (for worship or any other reason). If you don’t have one, we will provide one. We need you to watch for signs showing the directions people should walk when entering and exiting and then follow those directions. We need you to refrain from hugging, shaking hands, or any other form of touching. And if you feel sick or have a temperature, we need you to join us in worship online instead of in-person. Online worship services will be available for the foreseeable future for those who want to participate in worship in that way.
We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessings and if we all work together, we can do so safely. We look forward to seeing many of you on the 19th!
