DRIVE-IN WORSHIP WITH HOLY COMMUNION – 10:30am
As you arrive, you will receive a bulletin and presealed communion elements. These items will be handled with utmost care, and distributed by volunteers with masks and gloves.
You also may enter the church building to use the restroom. You may also have your window rolled down during the service. Whenever you are out of your vehicle, you must wear a mask and maintain 6′ of social distancing.
PROTOCOLS FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP ATTENDANCE
You must wear a mask. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask, please continue to worship online or at our drive-in service. Presealed communion elements will be placed on your chair before the service. You may briefly pull down your mask to take communion.
If you are sick, you must stay home. Please take your temperature Sunday morning before church. If it is higher than 100.4, you must stay home. If you have a frequent cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pains, sore throat, recent loss of taste or smell, or if you or someone you live with has been diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19, you must stay home.
You must maintain 6’ of social distancing. Procedures to ensure proper distancing include: entering by one door and exiting by another (these will be well marked); no more than two people in a bathroom at the same time, with distancing in the hallway should there be a line; worshipers will be dismissed from the sanctuary by name, beginning from the back; visiting will take place outdoors in the parking lot.
Also note that all music will be instrumental and/or sung by a cantor. If you want to sing you are encouraged to attend the drive-in service.
These are far from ideal circumstances for worship and Christian community. We are all missing our familiar routines and we look forward to the day when we can go back to gathering and worshiping like we used to. In the meantime, however, we will follow these procedures out of an abundance of caution, concern for the health of others, and love for our neighbors and especially our fellow church members. Thank you!
