Notes For In-Person Worship:
1 - Come and attend worship only if you are comfortable doing so. If, for any reason, you do not feel comfortable attending in-person worship yet, please stay home! (Online worship videos will continue.)
2 - Out of Christian love, respect, and concern for each other, worshipers are encouraged to wear masks as this is our governor's order at this time. If anyone is not wearing a mask, it will be assumed that they have a valid reason not to wear a mask; and we should respect their personal decisions.
3 - We will social distance during worship, but we don't need tape or barriers. Common sense and having a big space should make this easy for us. Worship folders (bulletins) will have all worship information in them - including hymns. We're using a distanced celebration of Holy Communion.
4 - Our worship will include some singing, but at less than 50% of normal. Our worship will not include any physical contact, no hymnals, friendship registers, or normal collection of offering.
5 - Restrooms will be open, but we should use them only if needed. There will be no seating in the entry and the coatrooms will be restricted. We are just encouraging a "walk-in - walk-out" guideline.
6 - Since not all of our members can gain this information here, please share this information with fellow members by phone or by personal conversation with them.
7 - Please continue to pray for each other as we worship together during such an extraordinary time!
