In-Person Worship Information...

**Per some conversations, discernment, prayer, and inputs we are opening In-gathering worship at the 9:30 am services. I will continue to measure any outbreaks or concerns as I have been and will continue to err on the side of caution for everyone that is concerned. After talking with the worship team about their concerns, agreements and issues, we will only allow 25% in the sanctuary, which would be about 35 people, along with people in the Narthex and if needed in the Fellowship Hall. We will continue on line, Facebook, YouTube, on our Web Page, radio transmitted and in print. We will follow the same safety rules as before, social distancing, masking, checking for fever etc., and all the rules that we have had in place before. Looking forward to seeing you!

As always, we take one day at a time. If you are feeling ill, are vulnerable or do not feel safe, please worship in one of the other four ways of worship. The church is not just the sanctuary, it is us and wherever we are. Our main objective is to keep all of us safe. If our worship and gathering time does not look safe and we are finding it is too hard to follow the instructions - for everyone’s safety, we will have to cancel in gathering worship. Please allow grace at this time and prayers for us all.

 

Peace, Pastor Brenda
