Live Worship Update

October 15, 2020

See below for the Current Sunday Schedule

9:00AM - Facebook LiveWatch
10:00AM - Indoor Worship
11:00AM - Parking Lot Communion (providing communion until about 11:30)

MDHS has announced a new directive reinforcing many of the masking and distancing standard from previous executive orders. We will operate in compliance with these practices." God bless, be safe and see you soon!



Indoor worship has returned!  Even is we can not see all the smiles...we can share those sparkling eyes!

We're continuing...and will have 60 in the sanctuary and others invited to fill a spaced Fellowship Hall and Gathering Space to hear the aurdio.

Below you will find a synopsis of the guidelines that were sent to you on September 17th and now in place:

â–ª The sanctuary has been reconfigured to allow about 60 worshippers; proper mask wearing and 6-foot distancing will be required. If you feel sick, please stay home.

â–ª Seating will be available every other pew, along with side pews. The choir loft will be a "work space" for A/V operators, so we will not use it initially for overflow--but that may change.

â–ª Ushers or other volunteers will assist in seating before and after worship, placing worship folders in pews with desired spacing.

â–ª For overflow, we can pipe audio only to both the Gathering Space and Fellowship Hall.

â–ª Worship will start at 10AM on Sundays: Communion host/bread will remain in plastic baggies and be distributed at the close of worship, with parking lot communion after close of worship; no wine will be offered.

â–ª Singing will be limited to the music leaders at the front of the sanctuary; we ask that you hum along as you see fit, as singing projects virus particles much more strongly than speaking, even through masks.
