Worship Service Information

Welcome Back!!

We are worshipping together again with services at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m.

Below you will find the annotated version of the poster displayed at all entrances.  Please limit your entry to the doors on W. 3rd Street and near the corner green space.  This will include the “limited accessibility entrance.”

So that we may worship safely and comfortably together:

Please observe 6-feet “social distancing.”

Facial coverings are Required. (Love your neighbor as yourself. Protect them as you would want to be protected. If you forgot yours, there are some disposable facial coverings available.)

Hand sanitizer is available.  Please retain for future use. (Hand sanitizer is provided for all worshippers 12 years old and older.  You may bring your own or use the one provided.)

Please sit in designated pews only. (If you see a sign that says, “Please do not Sit Here,” please comply. Seats available are marked with blue tape at the end of the pew.)

Hymnals, Bibles and other materials have been removed from the pews.  (If you wish to follow the Scripture readings, BYOB—Bring your own Bible.)

We will observe “no contact” offering collection. (If needed, pew envelopes are available on the table in the narthex. Collection plates are located near the sanctuary entrances.)

Discard bulletins in recyclables baskets after use. (Our worship service has been adapted for safety reasons.  There will be no congregational singing.  Spoken responses are kept to a minimum.  The service will be significantly shorter.)

Dispose of used “Communion Sets” in black trash bins. (Each worshipper wishing to take Communion is supplied with a “No contact” Communion set.  It contains a wafer and grape juice.  We will partake of Holy Communion as a congregation following the Words of Institution.)

Avoid “mingling” after the worship service and at all times maintain “social distancing.”

If you have a fever or you are not feeling well, please return home. (Take care.  Be safe.  God bless you.)
