This early service is to accommodate those who prefer to maintain stricter Covid-19 protection and distancing guidelines to avoid contagion. Therefore, we ask everyone who is in the building before Sunday School to keep masks on at all times, and maintain strict physical distancing.

Our plan is to provide the most worshipful service possible, including as many of the elements of worship as possible. Some of the differences from our 10:45 service will be:

  1. The service will be approximately 55 minutes long and will be a shortened version of our 10:45am service.
  2. Music will be provided and the words will be on the overhead for meditation. (if you choose to hum or sing quietly to yourself, that is fine). There will be no congregational singing.
  3. While the confession and creed will be projected, Pastor Phelps will do the reading as everyone else reads to themselves. There will be no congregational readings.
  4. Communion will be offered to those who choose to participate. There is no expectation that everyone will be comfortable with participating and there will be no “judgment” if you choose not to participate.
  5. As a precaution, at the end of the service, we ask everyone to exit out the door IN FRONT of the auditorium (up by the piano) so as to not run into those coming into the building to attend Sunday School.

 

For those who are NOT attending the 8:30am service, but are coming to Sunday School at 9:45am, we ask that you wear your mask and physical distance until Sunday School begins.
