Returning to In Person Service
Summer Reopening Plan (June, July and August)
Beginning Sunday, June 6, 2021, in-person worship and live streaming will continue every Sunday at 10:00 am in the sanctuary. Sign up for worship will not be required and there will be no restriction as to the number of worshippers. Based on the WCC guidelines, we have adopted the “two out of three” approach. By following this standard, we will be doing much to mitigate risk. All vaccinated and unvaccinated members will be asked to mask and social distance during worship in the sanctuary. These measures are also needed as we take a cautious stance on congregational singing indoors due to mixed vaccination status groups.
Fall Reopening Plan (September and Beyond): Beginning Gathering Sunday, September 12, 2021, the tentative plan is to fully reopen the sanctuary with 8:00 am and 11:00 am worship services. This is contingent upon the trends and metrics around COVID-19 and vaccinations of church members. In the best interest of the health of people of all ages, we will assess the reality and communicate the action plan in the August Methodist Messengers and announce plans during Community Sharing Time.
