Entering the church
Doors will be propped open. Plan to move away from entrances to allow others also to enter and exit. The ushers will be available to help the traffic flow.
Bulletins will be set out for you to pick up.

Please call Pastor to make arrangements for private communion until then.

Leaving church
We ask that people not stop to visit in hallways and close spaces. We encourage visiting before and after the service either in the pews or in the gym or outside (weather permitting), where a comfortable spacing is achievable.

Cleaning Protocols
After each service (and especially between the two on Sunday) we will wipe down surfaces and clean often touched places. We will need volunteers to help with this effort! If you are willing to lend a hand, speak with the usher or elder at the service you attend. A checklist and supplies will be provided.
Pray for God’s blessing on our church and our families as we gather. Pray for the health of all involved, and especially for our health care workers. Pray for our leaders and for all who are under their direction. Pray for peace and order, for the good of our nation, and for our freedom to worship the Lord our God in truth and purity.
