Worship Updates

Overview:
We now have worship in the Sanctuary at 9:45 am.  No pre registration is required.  

Sunday mornings we continue to have the Worship Service live streamed at 9:45 am  on Facebook and our YouTube Channel. A ZOOM option is also available to gather the community virtually for worship and includes a conference call option. See details below.

In-Person Worship

+ Masks will not have to be worn, except for those not fully vaccinated. Anyone who feels the need for extra protection is encouraged to continue to mask. Temperature checks and questions will no longer be required.

+ In an abundance of caution and the recognition that summer attendance is traditionally lower, the existing roped off pews will remain, but as attendance requires, they can be removed.

+ Attendees will be urged to sign the attendance pad in the pews; we will ask the worship leader to make time for people to sign in during the announcements.

+ Hand Sanitizer will continue to be available, and its use encouraged.

+ Communion: We will continue to use the pre-packaged for the time being. Communion may be consumed in the Sanctuary, either in one’s seat, or after receiving it, with members having the option to use the Communion Rail for prayer. We ask that you please dispose of the  cup and wrapper as you exit the sanctuary in designated bins.

+ Servants will continue to be organized using the online registration

+ Nursery care will be provided for young children
+ Children’s Sunday School is held at the same time
Servants needed:
+ Ushers
+ Greeters
+ Be trained to be a tech servant

We begin by sharing joys and concerns, then share in a pastoral prayer, and then close with Compline prayers from the Book of Common Prayer. This lasts about 15-20 minutes. Leadership will rotate and include me and church leaders. I will be the leader in these first days as we build this ministry, and then we will begin to rotate so that I will lead some nights, and others will lead some nights.

Just a reminder out of kindness, please place your phone on mute.  By placing your phone on mute until you want to request a prayer or comment.  You will be able to hear the service without other background noises present.  Thank you!
