In-Person Worship


Here are the guidelines for in-person worship.  We are working towards opening the church fully as soon as possible while maintaining the health and safety of all worshipers.  These guidelines are reviewed monthly by the Board of Deacons.

    Ushers will open the State Street and Pearl Street doors at 8:30 am.


    If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please exercise due caution and don’t come to in-person worship. Symptoms include muscle or body aches; headache;

    recent loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose; nausea or vomiting; diarrhea; shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; and fatigue. 


    Hand sanitizer is available for you to use when entering and leaving the building.


    Every second pew will be open on the east side and every pew will be open on the west side. We recommend always maintaining a safe social distance.

    Additional seating is available in the Fellowship Hall (downstairs).


    Wearing of face masks is encouraged, but optional for those who have been fully vaccinated.


    You may sing but recognize that singing generates aerosols which can spread the virus. We recommend wearing a mask when singing. You may also say

    the unison and responsive readings in a normal tone of voice. Fully vaccinated, vocal performers may sing in the choir loft without a mask. 


    If it is a communion Sunday, pick up your all-in-one communion elements from the table in the back of sanctuary or you may bring your own bread and juice.

    Each participant should dispose of their own resulting trash. 


    If you wish to make an offering, you will find offering plates in the narthex on the tables. 


    Restrooms are open for use. 



General Information 


    The air conditioning will be turned on and windows will be partially opened during services for air flow. 


    Fellowship will continue to be offered outside weather permitting, but it may be offered inside if weather is not favorable. Coffee, juice and water only will be served

    except for special occasions when prepackaged treats may be served. 


    The kitchen will not be available for any use other than coffee fellowship until further notice.
