If you are actively sick, please stay home! This covers both symptoms of COVID (fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste, etc.) and any other illness.
We will make sure that our entryways, hallways, bathroom and sanctuary are reasonably clean before our services.
If you are using the elevator, please do not crowd yourselves in.
With so many of us having received a vaccine, we are not requiring masks as you enter and move around. At this point studies show that vaccinated persons are unlikely to contract COVID, and that such a person is also unlikely to spread it. The CDC continues to encourage masks for persons who are not vaccinated; we trust that you will take care for your own health. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so.
We will have hand sanitizer available. Offering plates will be set out for your giving.
Every third pew will be available for seating; we continue to ‘rope off’ a space of two pews between them.
We are working on restarting parts of our worship service. When we share communion, we will continue to use prepackaged elements.
Gathering at 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., our Sunday morning worship services are what might be called traditional. We come in comfortable clothing (coat and tie are not required; clean and neat is good for us).
We read Scriptures and we hear a message our pastor brings from the Bible. There is a special message time just for the children. We sing hymns and songs, and enjoy musical selections from our chancel and bell choirs. We share our praises, joys, and concerns together in prayer. Special seasonal services are also held throughout the year.
The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Our United Methodist tradition is that Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another.
We invite a representative from the charity that will receive our monthly mission donations for our 5th Sundays Services to speak about their organization. A potluck dinner and fellowship time in the social hall follows the worship service. For contact information or directions to our church click on the contact tab on the Home page.
Mid-June thru Labor Day services are held in the lower level at 10:15 a.m.
Due to a very generous gift, we now have a video system in our sanctuary.
