In-person worship soon?

main image

While we haven’t been able to worship together in person, members of the Executive committee, Pastor Jon, and myself, are beginning to consider how we will go about gathering in
person again.

There are lots of things for us to consider. Singing? Hymnals? How to sanitize between each worship time? Communion? Bulletins? Greeters? Ushers? So many things to think about and it is overwhelming (at least for me personally). Will we have a reservation system to ensure only x number of people are in the
sanctuary at one time? So many questions that we don’t know the
answers to.

On May 19th and 21st I signed up for different webinars to see what other churches were doing, and their ideas for best practices. We got some useful tips and information that we are beginning to put together.

Another aspect of this is also what are people comfortable with? Will some stay home regardless until a vaccine comes out? Will people understand we can’t pass the peace, or why we won’t offer coffee for a while?

Please know that we are working behind the scenes to make the possibility of worship in person a reality that is safe for everyone. You should get an email, phone call, or keep checking the website for updates as we have them.

God’s peace and blessings to you all.
