Dear Sibling in Christ,
                It is with joy and hope filled expectation that we are beginning in person worship this Sunday, April 18th!
                Worship Times:  7:45 a.m. and 10:15 a.m.
                Online Worship:  9 a.m.
                To make sure we can continue to have in person worship so that everyone will be safe, here are the essentials you need to know:
  1. Masks are required while in the building and during worship.
  2. On entering the building everyone is asked to sanitize their hands.
  3. To maintain social distancing, max capacity set for the sanctuary is 50.  There is additional seating for 15 in the narthex. Ushers will help with seating as needed.
  4. After worship we ask that everyone immediately exit the building to help maintain social distancing and to allow time for sanitizing.
                Some things that will be different, for now, are:
  1. The worship service will be about 30 minutes.
  2. Communion will be in the pews.
  3. There will be no congregational singing.
                Of course, all of this and other details will be explained on Sunday.  It’s a new adventure and who knows where it will lead. 
As odd as this might sound, don’t feel the need to rush back for in person worship.  This is a “soft” opening and a time to discover what works and what doesn’t.  This, and for those who don’t feel comfortable returning to the building yet, is why we will continue our Zoom/On Line worship at 9 a.m.
                A very special thank you to the Council's Advisory Task Force for all the work they have done to make the worship time as safe as we can.
                God is doing a new thing, and we will be surprised by God’s grace and love together.
Pr. Scot
