Quick Reference Guide for Returning to Church

  • The only entrance to the sanctuary will be through the Main Street doors. If you park in the upper or middle parking lot, you may enter through the office doors and proceed through the breezeway to the Main Street entrance.
  • Remain in your car until the church doors open at 9:45. Do not congregate in the parking lot before or after worship.
  • As you enter the building, expect to have your temperature taken, maintain a 6-foot social distance, and wear a face covering. 
  • Hand sanitizing or frequent handwashing and avoiding touching one’s face or face covering is strongly advised. 
  • No drinking fountains will be available. 
  • Once seated by the ushers, all worshipers are asked to occupy their assigned seat throughout the time preceding and during the service and not move about or move to other seats in the sanctuary. 
  • Family members may sit together as a group without a 6 foot distance. However, individuals outside family units will be asked to sit 6 feet apart in specified seating as assigned. 
  • Remember that photo documentation and a seating chart will be done at each service to facilitate contact tracing should anyone at the service subsequently be diagnosed as having Covid-19 and potentially have exposed worshipers seated near them. 
  • The Order of Worship bulletin will be placed at designated seats on the pew and the offering plates in the vestibule.
  • There will be no congregational singing. Music will be provided by instruments or small socially distanced ensembles.
  • Remember to refrain from gestures of affection such as handshakes, hugs, or other physical contact and to remain socially distanced at all times while on the church campus or in the sanctuary.
  • At the end of the service, wait to have your row dismissed to facilitate an orderly and socially distanced exit from the sanctuary.
