Worship Service Information/Safety Measures

Below are the current Safety measures in place:

-We are no longer asking people to sign up online (This ended with the 2021 Easter Services). Individuals/families are encouraged to spread out in the sanctuary. Blue x’s are placed in each pew to assist people on where to sit.

-All are asked to wear masks in and out of church. At the 8am services individuals are invited to remove their mask while in the pew. The 10:30am service will be a fully masked service. (This is reevaluated by the congregational elders on a monthly basis)

-All ushers and elders will wear masks with Pastor Krenz wearing a mask during the service of the Lord’s Supper.

-Hand sanitizers will be found throughout the church.

-The Lord’s Supper will be celebrated in a continuous fashion with members spaced six feet apart. Markings on the floor will assist the congregation as they come forward. The pastor will distribute the host, and the members will partake of the small communion cups from a tray on the table with the elder standing behind the table. The altar area will not be utilized for communion.

-Children will stay with their families during the children’s message.

-People will exit from the back of the sanctuary. (The opposite of the way they came in)

-An offering box will be placed in the narthex. No offerings will be received during the service.

-If weather allows, windows and doors in the sanctuary and narthex will be open.

-Singing will take place, but the number of songs and verses will be decreased.

-If individuals are feeling sick and/or running a temperature they are asked not to attend these services.

-The service will be accessed via the worship screens, which means only weekly announcements will be distributed.

-We fully support the decision of those in high risk categories or others who do not yet feel comfortable attending an in-person worship service.
