****** WE ARE BACK! ******
IN PERSON WORSHIP SERVICES HAVE RESUMED
It is hard to believe that we have not worshiped together since mid-March. But our reopening team has been hard at work over the past few weeks and we have now resumed in person worship as of SUNDAY OCTOBER 18 at 9:30am.
Once again, I remind you that things will be different. We are asking you enter through the side doors off the patio. The patio will have markings six feet apart. You will be asked to come forward to have your temperature taken. Enter the sanctuary through the side doors, you will notice that the pews are marked six feet apart, move in towards the center aisle. Your usual pew may not be available. Please fill the center two sections of the pews first (this will aid in the sanitizing of the sanctuary between our service and the Koreans).
Wear face coverings at all times and maintain social distancing. There will be no printed bulletins but you can get an order of worship on your phone using the QR codes posted at entry points. The ushers will not be collecting an offering but there will be a basket placed in the narthex and you can place your offering in the basket as you leave the sanctuary. At the end of the service you will be dismissed by rows, starting at the back of the sanctuary, and as you exit through the narthex doors, onto the patio in front of the church, please maintain social distancing.
We will not have a Fellowship time but you can visit with friends on the patio while maintain social distancing.
I want to thank Brenda Roa, Liz Heacock, Ashleigh Kelly and the rest of her team for getting us ready to reopen.
I am looking for to seeing you all and worshiping together.
