Virtual Worship 7/18/2021

The following guidelines are based on the recent updated CDC Guidelines adopted by New York State and must be followed for in-person service:

  • Fully vaccinated people are no longer required to wear a mask or be socially distant from others.

  • Masks are still required for unvaccinated people, for whom social distancing rules will also remain in effect.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR ATTENDING CHURCH?

  • If you are vaccinated, there will no longer be a restriction to socially distance yourself from others.  Masks are also not required.

  • If you are vaccinated and would still prefer to be socially distanced from others and wear your mask, please continue to do so.

BASED ON THE HONOR SYSTEM...IF YOU ARE NOT VACCINATED WE ASK OUR CHURCH MEMBERS TO BE PROTECTIVE OF OTHER MEMBERS, REMAIN SOCIALLY DISTANCED IN THE APPROPRIATE SEATS, AND WEARING YOUR MASKS.

  • There will be seats designated for those not vaccinated or vaccinated who prefer to remain socially distanced from others.

  • We will no longer be required to do contact tracing.

  • We will, for the time being, continue to place the offering box at the greeters table alongside the bulletins as we have done since reopening for in-person worship.

  • We will continue to NOT offer the sign of peace at this time.

  • Bulletins and the hymn of the week will continue to be emailed weekly.  You are encouraged to print them at home and bring with you to church.

THIS IS THE BEGINNING WE HAVE ALL ANXIOUSLY BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO.  AS IN THE BEGINNING WHEN WEARING A MASK AND SOCIALLY DISTANCING WAS UNFAMILIAR, THIS, TOO, WILL BE AS UNFAMILIAR, BUT WE WILL WORK TOGETHER AS A CHURCH FAMILY OVER THE NXT SEVERAL WEEKS TO BEGIN ADDING WHAT WE HAVE SORELY MISSED.

UPDATED GUIDANCE 
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
