PROTOCOLS FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP
We are providing the following video link and protocol file with explanations of our opening and offerings for worship:
Protocol: Approved Protocol
These approved protocols have some significant changes in how we move and function in worship. Please know that these procedures are all done with great concern to reduce health risks,and that they are "transitional and temporary" measures.
We will continue to broadcast our service on Sunday mornings. And if your health is a concern we strongly encourage you to stay healthy at home.
Our protocol is greatly impacted to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 virus. For an exposition on the role of liturgical music and our response to reducing spread Gavin Craig, our Music Director, has provided this following link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tUvP04j9kU&t=1331s
Due to significant concerns of viral load through singing we will be conforming in this initial stage to restrictions in corporate singing. When we have a better understanding of how the COVID virus spreads in large group-enclosed activities, we hope to be able to relax some of these rules with the bishop's blessing.
We understand that these parameters will reduce our risk, but not completely eliminate risk. I encourage every parishioners to think of the needs of one another before your own needs or preferences. We shall reflect the same disposition of Christ Jesus who thought more highly toward others than to himself.
Due to limitations on space and the number of people who can attend, please RSVP for your service.
If you have difficulty signing up, please call the office and we will assist you.
Save these links for future use. You may also sign in for multiple Sundays in advance.
