Family of God,
It is hard to believe that we have not gathered in our sanctuary for worship since March 8th. We have all missed not only being physically together but also the joyful sounds of our choir and the fellowship of connecting with one another after worship. While honoring local safety restrictions and taking precautions for everyone’s health we have been worshipping from home. The Session has approved outdoor worship in our church parking lot on Sunday, Sept. 13th at 10:30 am. We hope that if everyone follows the guidelines provided, we can worship together outdoors occasionally this fall season. We will continue to offer online worship videos when we do not gather in the parking lot
as well as livestreaming the outdoor worship services so everyone can participate no matter where you are on a Sunday morning.
If you choose to join us for worship in the parking lot you may elect to bring your own communion elements, bread and juice, from home or use the sealed wafer and juice provided when you arrive at the church parking lot. If you choose to remain at home and watch the livestream of worship on Facebook, please be prepared with your own bread and juice.
If you have any questions or concerns after reading the enclosed detailed instructions, please contact the church o-ce. We look forward to giving this outdoor worship opportunity a try in partnership with our online worship option. Our goal is to engage in worship safely. If you choose to watch from home the service will be livestreamed on our Facebook page. If this goes well, we will schedule other opportunities for outdoor worship as weather permits throughout the fall season.
In Christ’s Love,
