coronavirus precautions

Worship space

Our Buildings & Grounds team has arranged for deep cleaning of the worship space as we prepare for re-opening.  Weekly cleaning protocols are followed to ensure the cleanliness of the space before and after each service.

We have reconfigured our worship space to provide at least 6 feet space between individuals or family groups.  Individual seats and groups of 2-6 worshippers are accommodated in the space.  Groups of more than six will be asked to divide into two groups of less than six.

Worship Service

We have adjusted our worship service to ensure that we follow CDC and other public health guidance for your safety. All people must wear masks at all times while in the church.

During the “Passing of the Peace” we ask that people remain at their seats and not congregate in groups, hug, or shake hands.

We will not be singing hymns or responses.  Singing has been shown be a factor in the airborne spread of viruses.

On Communion Sundays, we will bless the elements, but people will partake of the elements in their own homes after the service.

For those unable to join us in-person, we will live stream the service from the Sanctuary on Facebook Live.

Other precautions

Reservations are required so that we can ensure proper social distancing.  Contact the Church Office to tell us you want to worship in person with us.

We will be taking people’s temperatures as they enter.  People whose temperature exceeds 100.4 degrees will not be allowed in the church.

People attending the service will be asked to proceed immediately to their seats on arrival.  There will be no church Fellowship Hour after the service.
