Going Back to In-Person Worship
Some of the Details You'll Want to Know
PRE-REGISTRATION WILL BE REQUIRED
Either register online (using this link) or call the church office the week of the service you wish to attend. If you are willing to serve as a Greeter/Usher, please register separately from any family members attending with you. We need 5 people per week to assist with guiding members in following new practices.
If you are registering for worship (only), please include yourself and anyone attending with you. If you register for worship and then find that you will not be able to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to update.
Walk-ins will be asked to wait outside until 9:00. If we have not reached our 50-person limit at 9:00 (regardless of registration) walk-ins will be seated at that time. This means that if you have registered to attend, you need to arrive before 9:00.
All worshippers over 2 years old will be required to wear properly-fitting masks. (Click here for more information.) This is important to keep others safe, in case someone who is a carrier but showing no symptoms comes to church. Wearing a mask is not primarily about protecting yourself; it is about protecting/loving your neighbor.
Worship resources for you to use at home will continue to be available on the website.
Greeters/ushers will assist worshippers in maintaining social distance in the pews:
We have removed the cushions from the pews. If you need a cushion, please bring one from home.
Following the service, we will ask those who are able to sanitize their seating area with cleaning supplies we will make available. This will make things easier for the after-worship sanitizing crew, which will clean any remaining areas. (We'll explain more when you get there, but it will be easy!)
Note that the following changes will be made to worship at this time:
- No singing
- No community responses or prayers
- No communion
- No shaking hands or passing the peace
- Entry and exit through designated doors
- No congregating in the building before or after service.
Yes, we're also very sad about these changes. But our first priority is keeping everyone safe, so we appreciate your help in following the new procedures.
