Worship Service Information

**********************************************************************

New  Service Safety Protocols:
Please do not worship in the sanctuary if …
  • You are ill in any way,
  • You have been recently exposed to others with Covid,
  • You are quarantining due to Covid risks, 

1. Starting January 31, worshippers will enter and leave via the main doors.
2. Upon entering, worshippers will perform hand hygiene via the touchless hand sanitizer stand. Bring a pocket-sized bottle of sanitizer in the event you need to sanitize during the service, for example, after blowing your nose.
3. Masks are required. A supply of masks will be available. Those choosing not to wear a mask will be invited to worship in their car.
4. Worshippers are to check in with name and phone number. (In the event there is an identified outbreak associated with a worshipper on a given Sunday, we will have a record for contact tracing.)
5. Ushers will be utilized to control physical distancing of worshippers, with barriers as needed.  Worshippers may only be in the sanctuary or marked areas in entry/narthex.   Bathrooms are for “emergency” use only.
6. Paper bulletins are available, but it is preferred that inside worshippers follow along on screens in the front of the
sanctuary.
7. During worship, all prayers/responses are to be done silently. (This reduces the amount of respiratory droplets in the air of the sanctuary. Masks are important, but not perfect!)
8. Windows will be open slightly to allow increased ventilation. Keep your coat on and bundle up!  It will be cold at church this winter. (Good ventilation is an important factor in decreasing the spread of the virus in group settings.)
9. At the end of the service, you will be dismissed by ushers, pew by pew.  Please stay seated until you are dismissed. You will exit via the main doors.
10. For at least the late fall/winter months, Holy Communion will be offered on the 1st Sunday of the month only. Those worshipping in their cars will need to bring their own elements.  Communion will continue to be offered as you exit the church.  Remove your mask once outside and take communion then.  Do your best not to block the exit of other worshippers.
11. Consider mailing your weekly offering, or setting up electronic contributions, especially if you are choosing in-car
worship.  Once the inevitable snow and ice start happening, everything gets more difficult and potentially hazardous.

Christmas Video Service

A Special Monday Video Service,    December 21st.  The Winter Solstice.

On the day of the solstice, the darkest day of the year, please watch Pastor Greg’s  video service and message.   Not everyone experiences the Joy of Christmas.    Some can feel left in the darkness.   This service is to remember that even in dark days, God’s Presence is Always with Us.  Watch for the video on Monday the 21st.

Continue to share Your Kindness Pandemic with all those you care for and love this Holiday Season.

What does that mean?  Just like this nasty virus can spread and cause disruption and disease, we can spread positivity, friendship and kindness.
