Reopening: May 23, 2021, 9:30 am

“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.”
—Acts 2:1

As increasing numbers of church members have been vaccinated, we are planning to begin in-person worship in the church sanctuary, with restrictions, on Pentecost Sunday, May 23, 2021. In-person services will require masks and social distancing, along with other safety precautions. We’ll let you know more details as the date approaches. An online worship option will also continue throughout the summer, for those who are not yet vaccinated or who prefer to wait.

Based on the latest CDC recommendations and state regulations, here’s what to expect:

😷 If you are not yet fully vaccinated (not yet 2 weeks after your last shot), please wear a mask.

😷🤔 If you are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your last shot), you may choose whether to wear a mask.

😮🎶 We will sing as a congregation.

🧍‍♂️↔️🧍‍♀️ We recommend social distancing. We will not tape off pews, but we ask you to respect others’ personal space.

🚪 Doors will remain open, to improve ventilation.

☕ We will have fellowship hour after worship outdoors.

💻 An online worship option will continue through the summer. The Sunday worship service will be recorded and posted online later in the day.
