Yes, we are open. We ask each person in attendance agree to the following:
- Stay home if you are sick or have underlying health issues.
- Wash your hands. This should go without saying. It is true that a lack of personal hygiene does spread germs.
- Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throw it away, or cough into your elbow, not your hands.
- Stay away from people who are sick. If you have had contact with a person who is known to have COVID-19, we ask that you use Facebook livestream to enjoy the church service.
What we are doing differently:
- Rows are spaced 6 feet apart.
- Please sit together with people from your household and leave a couple chairs between you and other households.
- The words to congregational songs are on the screens instead of the hymn books.
- Facemasks are available (but nor required) when you enter.
