As of Sunday, September 13 we are moving back to indoor worship services! This is for both the morning and evening services.
Below you will find the guidelines for indoor worship as established by the Executive Committee.
Please note that masks are strongly encouraged, but not required to enter. Masks will be available at each entry along with hand sanitizer. Please refrain from socializing in the Narthex before and after the service.
Entering the Service
You will be greeted at the door by a masked greeter who will open the door for you. You will be asked to go to your mailbox, get your mail, and then go to be seated. A masked usher will take you to your seat. They will be seating families in every other row, on opposite ends of the row, maintaining a 6 foot distance between family groups in the row.
During the Service
Some things will be missing. There will be no time of greeting between congregation members. There will be no passing of offering plates. Offering baskets will be placed at each entrance to the sanctuary. Otherwise, the service will proceed as normal with perhaps a few less songs.
In the event that the sanctuary fills up, there will be additional seating downstairs in the gym, and also in the narthex. There will be a screen with a live-feed in the gym downstairs for watching the service. Overflow seating will be set up prior to the services. Please do not move chairs unless necessary.
After the Service
Following the parting blessing, the ushers will be dismissing the congregation “wedding style”, beginning with the back rows and moving towards the front. Greeters will again hold the doors open for you as you exit. There will not be refreshments served. Once again, please refrain from socializing inside the building.
Nursery will be available for the morning worship services starting on September 13. A health survey will be required to be filled out by both volunteers and parents before going into nursery. Temperature will be taken of each child and volunteer before entering nursery. Masks will be required by volunteers.

We ask that anyone with pre-existing conditions, or those who are considered high risk persons, be very aware of the risk you are taking in attending a worship service.
