COVID-19

Safety and Precautions

We understand that some may have concerns about attending church on location. 

 

Your safety and health is a priority to us so we're taking extra precautions to keep you safe.

 

We've also started to Live Stream our 9:30 Service on YouTube

 

WATCH HERE

We will continue with communion on the driveway immediately following the 9:30am service.  

 

Here are the restrictions we will be operating under, and how we are going to handle them.

Please note, per diocesan guidelines, none of these are optional and all must be followed:

  1. No more than 50 people may be in the church - this includes the clergy.  You will need to make a reservation to attend the 9:30 AM service.   We are required by the diocese to keep a list of everyone who attends in the event there is exposure to the virus.   The balcony will be reserved for families in the same household of four or more.

  2. Because of the restriction of only 50 people in the church, the altar party will consist of an acolyte, Deacon Susie, and myself.   Choir remains suspended. We will ask for volunteers to read from each service.  If no one is willing to read, the clergy will step in. 

  3. Everyone must wear masks. If you are reading, you may take the mask off to read, but must put it back on when finished. 

  4. Receiving the chalice will not be permitted. Communion will be in one kind - host only, for safety reasons.

  5. Passing of the peace remains suspended.

  6. There will be no social time or receptions at this time due to social distancing and health reasons. 

Funerals and baptisms are now permitted, but will follow the same restrictions.
