Third Sunday In Lent
Our church covid-19 safety committee, including Pastor John, met recently to discuss safely reopening our church for services. After considerable discussion, we concluded that it would be reasonably safe to open the sanctuary one day per week, providing that we resume the safety measures which we followed last year.
Sunday church services in the sanctuary will resume on March 7. As last year, we will follow the CDC guidelines of requiring wearing of masks, physical distancing and limited, quiet singing. If you don't have or forget your own mask, we will have some available for you. If you happen to have a condition that doesn't permit you to wear a mask, then, for the safety of others, we will ask you to sit in the chapel area. As before, there will be tape on the pew seats indicating safe distancing between people, and ushers will assist people in exiting the church by rows at the conclusion of the service.
Since safety guidelines suggest that we limit physical gathering, we will not be having Lenten services in the sanctuary. Pastor John is planning on having online services (either live or prerecorded for broadcast at noon on Wednesdays). He will also be meeting with the Worship Committee to finalize plans for Maundy Thursday/Good Friday.
We all pray that our reopening will go smoothly and be permanent and that this pandemic is truly on the wane. We believe that we can help that happen by all of us following the latest CDC guidelines in our personal lives. If you or your loved ones do not feel comfortable returning to church with these restrictions or for fear of exposure, Pastor John is planning on continuing to post the service online.
