Guide for In-Person Sunday Services

As a Consistory we have set these guidelines as we open church up to in-person services. Please be aware that these guidelines, along with our plans, are tentative and will be based on information as we receive it on a day-to-day basis. Please stay up to date via the bulletins and email announcements.

  1. Doors will open at 9:10 am, Ushers (Elders for this week) will arrive at 9 am
  2. Main doors for entry will be the front door and the north kitchen door. 
  3. If you have any symptoms please don’t enter. For example having a fever. 
  4. Hand sanitizer stations will be by the fellowship hall sanctuary doors.
  5. The fellowship hall sanctuary doors will have stations to deposit offerings. 
  6. There is blue tape on carpet as you enter the church marking 6 feet distance

  4. Masks are optional, but encouraged for those with health concerns, Usher will have masks available.
