Beginning October, worship will be back to 9:30 a.m. in the sanctuary with the practice of social distancing and wearing masks.
PROCEDURES FOR SANCUARY SERVICES (A/O OCTUBER 4TH)
When you return for sanctuary services on October 4 please follow the new procedures mandated by governmental regulations:
All attendees must enter and leave thru the Front or West doors. This prevents having to sanitize the fellowship hall and the kitchen. The sanctuary, narthex and rest rooms will be sanitized prior to service. Other than the rest rooms do not use any other doors. Face masks must be worn. Maintain 6 feet distancing.
Please wait for an usher to seat you. They will prevent anyone outside of your family from sitting within 6 feet of you. No one will be seated directly behind you. Wait for an usher! The congregation will be seated first in the front pews, working toward the rear of the sanctuary. When services end those seated in the rear of the church will leave first, working toward the front pews.
There will be no passing of contribution plates, bulletin and attendance registers. There will be no hymnals or Bibles available. Feel free to bring your own Bibles. There will be no nursery care.
The number present in the sanctuary is limited to 50. Those exceeding this number will be seated in the narthex.
