Preparing for In-Person Worship Services

COVID Protocols as of March 20, 2022

  • Masks are not required in our building at this time.

  • We ask that the unvaccinated comply with CDC guidelines and wear masks in our building and in public settings. We also ask the unvaccinated to consider testing before coming to the church building to be with others, and to follow current CDC exposure and quarantine guidelines.

  • We recommend and affirm the wearing of masks by anyone who wishes to.  Among us there are caregivers, people with compromised immune systems, children for whom a vaccination is not available and those who simply feel safer in a mask. Masks continue to be a good way to protect oneself from disease.

  • One side of the sanctuary (the pulpit side) will be reserved for socially distanced seating, and if you sit on this side, you must wear a mask.

  • Pre-registration is not required to attend worship at this time.

  • We will continue to offer optional online and on-site registration for those who wish to be contacted should we have a positive case identified in our community.

  • We ask that all worship attendees check in with our worship hosts as we will NOT have attendance pads in the pews, and worship attendance is one way we care for one another.

Holy Communion, first Sunday of the month

There will be celebration of Holy Communion the first Sunday of the month.  We will provide pre-packaged, sealed elements for each person so that you may share in this sacrament together.

Music & Singing

Live music will be a part of our service.  There will limited singing.

Contact Tracing if you test positive for COVID-19

If anyone who attends an indoor worship service tests positive for COVID-19 within ten days (or as recommended by the CDC guidelines) of attendance, the privacy of that individual would be protected and contact tracing would be utilized.  This person should contact the office at 301-881-1881.
