Covid 19 Operating Policies

We are back to in-person services as of February 28th, 2021. As a result - the following protocols are in place to attend a worship service inside the sanctuary.

It is important to note, anyone who is at risk or feels uncomfortable about attending services in-person are encouraged to join us on Facebook Live. You do not need to have a Facebook account to view. 

  • Masks must be worn by attendees at all times within the sanctuary and building. 

  • It is safest if each attendee brings their own hand sanitizer, however hand sanitizer will be made available at the entrance and exit. 

  • Social distancing is required; all people, except members of the same family, shall remain 6 ft. apart at all times.

  • If a kneeler is used during the service, it should be left down for proper cleaning prior to the next service.

  • If you choose to use it, a bulletin will be provided for the service. All other books, hymnals, etc. have been removed from the pews. 

  • We will continue to say/wave/sign The Peace from our seats.

  • The consecrated host will be given during the closing hymn and once received, attendees may exit the church.

  • Offerings may be dropped in the offering plate at the entrance of the Sanctuary. 

  • All individuals participating in the service itself will do so from a position behind the rood screen. As a precaution, the first several rows of pews will be closed to seating.

Below are the protocols that will be in place to attend a worship service outside:

  • Masks are required to arrive, find seating, and depart. Once seated masks may be removed. However upon moving about, masks must be used. 

  • It is safest if each attendee brings their own hand sanitizer, however hand sanitizer will be made available. 

  • Seating will be provided to allow for social distancing. All people, except members of the same family, shall remain 6 ft. apart at all times.
