Outdoor Communion Reminder

Outdoor communion services will be short and will provide an opportunity to gather together for prayer and Holy Communion. If we need to cancel a service due to weather, we will inform participants via email 3 hours prior to the service.

Because we care deeply about your safety and well-being, a number of measures are being taken to limit possible exposure to COVID-19:
• Each service will be limited to 50 people.
• You can enter the backyard from the parking lot. Please maintain physical distancing from the time you exit your vehicle until you re-enter it.
• You are asked to bring your own chairs. There will be folding chairs at the church for those who need them and they will be cleaned by ushers.
• Everyone over the age of 2 will be required to wear a mask. Masks will be available for those who do not bring them.
• When you arrive, please check in with an usher so they can mark you on the list of attendees and help you with physical distancing during seating.
• We cannot provide a tent for shade and allow for physical distancing so please bring protection from sun, bugs and light rain. (Set up will hopefully allow people to sit under the shade of trees.)
• There will be limited access to indoor restrooms (one person at a time in the building).
• The service will not involve congregational singing and Pastor Amy will use a microphone to amplify her voice.
• Communion will be offered using a single-serve cup with a wafer of bread attached. Physical distancing will be practiced as households are ushered to the table. Communion will be distributed without physical contact.
• Please keep your mask on while you go through the communion line. Remove it back at your chair to partake of holy communion.
• Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms needs to stay home.
• Please be advised that the CDC recommends that those at high risk for a more severe COVID-19 illness (people over 65 and those with underlying conditions) avoid gatherings.
• If you do test positive for COVID-19 after attending one of these services, you need to contact Pr. Amy right away. She will honor confidentiality and will work with local authorities for contact tracing.
