In Person Worship - July

In-Person Worship

We have people eager to worship without masks. We have people who have good reason to be more comfortable worshiping with masks. How can we accommodate both? We will have a "masked-only" zone and a "mask-optional" zone.

First, Coming and Going
On your way in, and on your way out, and on your way to and from the Lord's Supper, please wear your mask. (And let's not block doorways and aisles.)

The "Mask-Only" Zone
If you prefer to wear a mask and sit with other people who are all masked, we invite you to join us in the back of the nave in the pews marked with a mask. (In the back, you won't have maskless people singing behind you.)

The "Mask-Optional" Zone
If you are fully vaccinated and prefer to worship without a mask, we invite those who are fully vaccinated to join us in the front half of the church where masks are optional for the fully vaccinated.

If you are not fully vaccinated, we encourage you to wear a mask, and then sit where you would like.

If you are feeling too crowded upstairs, worship with us downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.

While COVID rates are down and vaccination rates are up, it is still a real possibility that anyone, vaccinated or not, could get or share COVID. Therefore, if you or someone in your household are ill, PLEASE worship online at home!
