Guidelines for Outdoor Worship

We are excited to resume in-person worship in an outdoor setting, beginning June 28, 2020.

For the safety of our congregation, worship leaders, and our community, we ask anyone attending the outdoor service to cooperate with the following guidelines:

  • Please stop at one of the usher tables to receive your bulletin and drop off any offerings or Caring coins. Hand sanitizer will be available.

  • All those attending will wear masks or other face coverings. Masks will be provided at the ushers’ tables for those who arrive without one.

  • Participants will be seated on the lawn at a safe distance (6-feet between households). Please bring your own lawn chair. One you’ve taken your seat, please remain seated until the conclusion of the service.

  • The service will be brief. Congregational responses will be limited, and we will not be singing except for the closing doxology.

  • Participants are urged to avoid handshakes, hugs, elbow-taps, or other forms of physical contact that do not honor the safe distancing precautions.

  • Access to the church building is restricted to worship leaders and those in need of an emergency bathroom break.

  • The service will be livestreamed via Facebook. If you do not wish to appear in the online video, please choose a seat that will keep you out of the view of the camera.

Notes for after the service:

  • If you’ve been at a church activity within 7 days of receiving a positive COVID-19 test, please notify Pastor Andrea.

  • Members and guests should stay at home and worship online if they or anyone in their household is sick or has symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell. Persons who are at higher risk for severe illness (elderly or underlying health conditions) are strongly encouraged to stay home and worship online.
