Protocols for In-Person Worship
IN-PERSON WORSHIP SERVICES HAVE BEEN APPROVED TO RESUME (See Protocols below)
The following Worship protocols during the pandemic will be observed:
Reservations to attend services are no longer required.
Masks are still required.
Several pews in the front are reserved for those who desire physically-distanced seating; all other pews are "open seating."
Greeters will record names/phone numbers of those attending service just in case we have need of contact tracing. That list will be kept on file should an outbreak occur.
As a reminder, the Nursery will be unavailable until further notice
Most doors will now be open.
Ushers will continue to release people for Communion.
Bulletins will be placed the pews, with extras in the back pew.
The complete service will continue to be printed in the bulletin.
We prefer that bulletins be taken home by worshipers.
Hymns may be sung by the congregation while masked.
Offering plates will continue to be placed in stationary locations.
Please place your offering in a plate before service as you are seated.
Liturgical party will consist of:
Lector, 1-4 Cantors (maintaining 20' distance between everyone), Organist, Deacon, and Priest.
Deacon will sanitize hands before preparing the table and will assist the Priest.
Communion rite will be said with mask.
Priest will commune self first and sanitize hands before administering Communion to the people.
Hosts to be administered in front of Nave Altar in standing position.
Communicants to approach physically distanced and wearing mask.
Arms fully outstretched to receive.
Priest will administer host with outstretched arm and not touching the communicant.
Communicant will consume the host either on their way to their seat or at their seat.
Only the Priest will consume the consecrated wine.
Parishioners are are asked to exit the building after the postlude.
Socializing in the building is discouraged. Please continue to gather outside to socialize with appropriate distancing.
Commissions are still encouraged to meet via Zoom (or similar platform).
In order to help contain the spread of COVID, we will continue with one service at 9:30 on Sunday for the time being.
