I Starting June 6


Worship and Sanctuary Use

  • Worship will be open for up to 40 people with the number              increasing every few weeks.


  • We will lift the sign-up requirement for worship. We will ask people to sign-in for contact tracing.  


  • We will encourage worshipers to leave some distance from each other.


  • We will not require 6 feet of distance or assign seats.


  • Masks will be required.


  • No food or beverage allowed.


  • We will not pass around the offering plate or communion or hand out bulletins.


  • We will keep the balcony closed, only to be used by our sound and video team. 


  • We will require all groups and congregations to disinfect after every use.


Fellowship Hall and Classroom Use

  • The fellowship hall and other classrooms will be open for use by groups who can allow for distance between individuals.


  • Masks will be required. 


  • No food or beverage will be allowed.


  • Each group will need to disinfect surfaces with their own disinfectant.


II Sunday Morning Bible Study, Youth and Children’s Activities


  • Beginning in June the Drop-in Class will begin to meet In-person in the fellowship hall.


  • The pastor will continue the Zoom Class for those who choose to stay home.


  • We might start a second In-Person class in room 200 if there is not enough space in the fellowship hall for all who would like to attend.


  • We plan to wait until August to start Youth and Children’s Sunday School.


  • Youth and Children’s Activities can be planned starting June 6th but we encourage them to be held outside.
