At this time, these are the procedures and protocols that are used for Worship, Bible Study, and Sunday School

 

  • All are encouraged to assess their own health. If you are not feeling well, please stay home.

  • If you are vaccinated, the choice to wear a mask or face covering is yours. If you are NOT vaccinated, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to wear masks or face coverings. This is asked out of concern for the safety of our at-risk disciples.
  • Please enter and exit the church through the front doors only [the worship entrance, not the Preschool/Office entrance].

  • There will be 2 [Two] stations where hand sanitizer will be available; one by the mailboxes and the other near the doors to the kitchen/hallway.

  • People should sit in every other row of pews or chairs to help maintain proper social distancing. One household should sit in one row. At the end of the service, you will be ushered out as normal, one row at a time, except that we will start at the back of the sanctuary and work our way to the front. Please do not exit through the double doors in the middle of the sanctuary. This will help us maintain 6 ft. distancing.

  • Large-print style bulletins will be provided for everyone. They will be available on a table near the back row of chairs.

  • High contact surfaces [Doorknobs/handles, counters, wood pew backs, etc.] will be sanitized after each service. Cloth surfaces [pew seats, chair seats, etc.] will be disinfected after each service.

  • Offerings & tithes may be placed in the offering plates located at the back of the sanctuary.

  • There will be no formal sharing of peace during service. We can safely exchange greetings by maintaining 6 ft distance.

  • Communion will be celebrated on the 2nd & 4th Weekends of each month. Communion will be celebrated at the Communion rail.  We will be limiting the number of people on each side to 3 individuals or 1 household to maintain some spacing.

  • The entire service will be recorded and posted as an audio file on the church website along with a .pdf version of the bulletin. Click here to access.

  • Please make sure the Elder at your service sees you to record your attendance. This is for our records.

 

These procedures will be evaluated, and adjusted as the situation warrants.  Never forget the Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress
