Worship - General Information
In-Person Worship Returns!
Session Approved In-person 10:45 AM Worship
IN PERSON WORSHIP RETURNS!
The day we have longed for has arrived! The traditional worship service at 10:45 is open to all. This is a deliberate “staged” re-entry with some restrictions.
As we re-enter worship, please be respectful and responsible of personal choices. Masks are not required but wear one if you are more comfortable. We encourage greeting each other but not shaking hands and hugging as there folks who will still be uncomfortable doing so. Social distancing is encouraged as you choose where you wish to sit. There will be no food or beverage served.
During worship there will still be some restrictions, we will sing and respond to the liturgy, but we will not pass the peace or the offering plates. Only hymnbooks will be in the pews. There will be bulletins. It may still feel constrained, but the session feels that safety and slow steps are appropriate.
The most wonderful part of this is we CAN SING!! And share worship IN PERSON! I, for one, cannot wait! See you Sunday.
Rev. Ruth Hicks - Temporary Head of Staff (on behalf of the Session)
