  • Make liberal use of our hand sanitizing stations.
  • Do not consume food or drink, with the exception of communion during worship.
  • If you do not feel well, please stay home for your own and other’s comfort and safety.
  • Sanitizing wipes will be in all restrooms, so those who wish may wipe down touchpoints before using.

Worship Services
MASKS REQUIRED

  • Volunteers will greet you at either the East Entrance (off 18th St.) or the West Sanctuary Entrance (off 17th St.)
  • Worship bulletins will be in the pews.  Please sit only where there is a bulletin, as they are placed to maintain six foot distancing between family groups.  When in doubt, please keep 3-4 seats between you and the next family group.
  • We sing one hymn together; soloists or instrumentalists will provide special music for the service.
  • Offerings can be given online or deposited in locked boxes at each exit from the sanctuary.

COMMUNION will be offered on the first Sundays of the month.

  • Pre-packaged, individual Communion elements will be provided for you.
  • When we take communion you may remove your mask.  Please put your mask back on after you have partaken of the elements.

CARING VISITS - UPDATED

Due to the concerning rise in the Delta variant and even the number of breakthrough cases among the fully vaccinated, we are pausing for the most part in person caring visits.  We realizing that not seeing people face to face is difficult, however we do this for the safety of all involved.

We continue to reach out by email, phone and zoom.

If you would like a caring visit, please contact us and we will be in touch to arrange a visit with one of our caring ministers.
