Our committee wishes to emphasize to the congregation about changes
in Covid protocols that will now in place.
We are mask affirming. We respect others who do or do not wear masks.
Our mask affirming policy allows congregational singing with or without masks.
Each congregant should decide whether to participate or not.
We encourage you to think about those around you and their health needs.
We have removed the crepe paper barriers in the pews but encourage social distancing.
Please use hand sanitizer that is provided. Please stay home when not feeling well.
For Fellowship and Fellowship Hall
We will have weekly fellowship. (But to do so, we will first need more volunteers!)
We will freshen up Fellowship Hall. We will return round tables, etc. and clean off the bulletin boards, etc.)
We will have limited food servers and they will wear disposable gloves. We will have single serve food portions when possible.
We will clean up the kitchen and Fellowship Hall after each use.
For Worship and the Sanctuary
You will see the return of all hymnals, Bibles, and attendance booklets to the pews.
The Visitor's Guest Book will be returned to the entrance area of the narthex, as well as "Welcome" Information Folders.
Continuation of Prayer requests being phoned to Laurel by Thursday. There won't be request cards in the pews, but Pastor Stephen will give an opportunity for oral prayer requests during the service.
We will continue to serve communion with the prepackaged wafer and juice.
The offering plates will remain at the back of the sanctuary.
