we're moving in-person worship back to our worship center!

We've decided to return our Sunday morning in-person worship to our worship center, on the upper level of our building, beginning this Sunday, June 6. Here's what you need to know about the move:

  • We recommend that you park in our main lot, on the west side of the building (so drive up and around the little bend, to what seems to be the back side of the building).
  • Fully-vaccinated people, whom the CDC defines as those who received their final vaccine shot two or more weeks earlier, may enter and move around the building without  a mask.
  • We ask people who are not fully-vaccinated to wear a mask when inside the building, except when seated in the worship center.
  • Anyone, AT ANY AND ALL TIMES, may wear a mask when in the building, regardless of their vaccination status. Our fully-vaccinated pastor expects to wear a mask on Sunday mornings except when leading worship so as to affirm the choice of others who wish to do the same.
  • We will make available a hands-free hand sanitizer station.
  • We will not serve refreshments, either before or after worship.
  • We ask that all worship participants other than the multimedia system operator sit, socially distanced from other households, in the front half of the room... in pews marked with a sign.
  • Until further notice, we will not engage in congregational singing.
  • Sealed and disposable communion element packets will be available in a tray on the stand adjacent to the center entrance to the worship center. We invite you to take one as you enter, for use later in the worship.
  • A tray in which people may place any financial offering they wish to make on any given Sunday will be available on the same stand, but only at the close of worship, making said offering one final act of worship. [In case it's not clear from that wording, people who donate to our church do so at the level and frequency of their choosing, meaning on any given Sunday, several people make no offering. So those who don't place an offering in the tray never stand out in any way.]
  • If the return to the worship center creates unacceptable financial burdens (i.e. via heating/cooling costs) we will return in-person worship to fellowship hall.
  • REALLY IMPORTANT: As in-person worship moves back to the worship center, our phone-in worship option WILL continue. For details on that option, CLICK HERE.
