Guidelines for Attending Worship in the Sanctuary

The sanctuary is open to in-person worship, with safety protocols in place (masks, distancing, no congregational singing, etc.).  We welcome those who have been vaccinated as well as others who are feeling well and haven't been recently exposed to the virus.  We will continue to livestream the service for those who prefer to worship at a distance. 

All who attend will be expected to abide by these safety guidelines:

Check in with the greeter when you arrive.  You will be asked to give your name, contact information, and attest to being in good health.  Reservations are not required at this time.

If you are in a high-risk category, have any symptoms, or are unwell at all, please do stay home and take care of yourself.  Services are livestreamed at 10:30 a.m. and recorded for later viewing on both Facebook and YouTube.

If you have traveled out of the area or may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past two weeks, please do stay home as a precaution and join us online.

Masks are required at all times, both inside and outside.

Hand sanitizing stations are available outside the sanctuary door.  Please use sanitizer before entering and exiting the sanctuary.

Sit in designated pews only.  Enter through the main double doors and take the available seats closest to the front.  Ushers will assist you in finding a seat. 

Six-foot distancing is maintained at all times between individuals or family groups, whether inside or outside.  Please visit outside to avoid congestion in the narthex.

Congregational participation is invited during corporate prayers.  Prayer requests (joys and concerns) may be written out at home or on a card we will provide.  Pastor Norman will collect the prayer cards about 5 minutes before the service and share them at prayer time.  Congregational singing is allowed on a limited basis.

Children are welcome to sit with their parents in worship.  Parents are encouraged to bring activities for their children.  The children’s area in the sanctuary will not be available and childcare in the nursery will not be provided.

At the end of the service, exit via the side aisles, by pews, starting from the rear.  Ushers will assist you.  Please do not linger in the narthex, but go directly outside.  You are welcome to visit with each other outside, with masks and social distancing in place.  No treats or coffee, but you may bring your own water bottle.

Restrooms available upstairs.  Please use only the upstairs restrooms, and sanitize everything you touch with the disinfectant wipes provided.

If, after attending worship, you become symptomatic or test positive for COVID-19, please notify the church office immediately.  Our check-in system will allow us to let others know of their potential exposure.
