Resuming In-Person Worship

In-person worship is resuming on September 13th at 9:00 am. We are well aware that many of you will not feel comfortable resuming in-person worship. We respect that perspective and further we do not recommend participation in this service if you are in a vulnerable category.  We will continue to make worship available in a variety of platforms so that anyone who wishes to worship will be able to do so. Below you will find all of the options for worship as well as what is required to participate.  

 

In Person Worship:

  • Seating is limited to 15 families/households to ensure adequate space to social distance.   We understand that some of you have close family and friends whom you have chosen to be regularly exposed to.  We will leave it to your discretion whom you feel comfortable sitting with. Those of you who sign up as a single person would also be considered one unit. (please do not let signing up as a single person hinder you.)  Only one person from your family/household needs to make a reservation. Please show up together to make the seating process easier for everyone.

  • If the worship limit has been reached when you contact us, you will be put on the list for the next upcoming week that works for you.

  • You may show up on Sunday morning even if you haven’t made a reservation. Any left-over spots will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.  However, understand that you may be turned away at the door. A radio version of the service will still be available to you – more on that below.

  • All participants are required to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing. We will trust you to self-screen yourself before entering the building.  If you are running a fever or feeling ill in any way – we ask that you stay home. Also, if you have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or to someone who is awaiting test results for Covid-19 we ask that you not enter the church building.

  • The parking lot door will be the only door open for entry and exit. As you enter you will be checked off the reservation list, you will pick up a communion packet which will be laid out on a nearby table, and you will be seated in a designated pew.

  • Please note that even as we try to keep the service as close to normal as possible, there will be noticeable differences.  There will be limited congregational speaking and no singing.  Yeah, it’s a bummer.

  • After the service is over you will be dismissed by family group and asked to follow the signs leading you out of the building. We ask that any socializing happen outside with great attention paid to social distancing.

Radio Worship Service

  • As noted above there will be a radio broadcast of the service available to those who are parked just outside of the church, either in the parking lot or on the street.

  • Just tune your radio to 88.5 and you can sing your heart out.  Communion and bulletins will also be available for anyone who would like to participate. Just stay in your car and someone will bring these items to you.

Online Worship Service

  • Our online worship will continue to be available. As we begin in-person worship we will stream it through Youtube.  You will still be able to find the service by going to the same page that you have previously gone to.  There will be a link taking you to the live-stream. 

  • Following the online service, drive-through communion will be available to anyone who would like it until 10:15 am. Pastor Gretchen will set up a distribution station on the Monument Park side of the church.

Reservations for  will be taken for November 1st from October 24-31.  You will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours.
