Here is the bulletin for the In-Person Worship Service on March 7, 2021.
Re-Opening Plan & Procedures
Our first indoor service will be on Sunday, January 31st.
Even as we enter Yellow Light Status, High-risk individuals should continue to worship with us VIRTUALLY. This would include: people over 60, those with underlying conditions or other vulnerabilities, those who have tested positive, and those who have been exposed to someone Covid19 positive in the last 14 days, and anyone that have any symptoms. This includes staff, volunteers, parishioners and guests.
In order to be able to safely come back inside, FUMC Re-Opening Sub-Committee met and established these guidelines. They must be followed in order to protect all those worshiping together.
Capacity: The first few months of indoor worship, capacity will be extremely limited. As we continue to work out the different possible scenarios that may arise, we have set up the dining room to stream the Virtual Service should we reach our maximum capacity in the sanctuary.
Facial Covering: Masks or Facial Coverings are required and must be worn correctly. Our ushers have been trained on the proper way to wear a mask, and if there is an issue with yours, our ushers will let you know. We will have some available if needed.
Entrance: There will be two points of entry, the East entrance and the Southwest entrance. Please watch for social distancing markers. As we move into the church, we understand that it may become congested. Please be patient and remain socially distanced while waiting as this is new territory for us all.
Seating: Ushers will direct you to a specific seat. Please sit there, as we have measured out the required social distancing guidelines. You will NOT be able to pick your own seat or sit where you normally sit.
Offering: There will be two offering boxes located at both entrances/exits. Please drop your offering in there. We will still hum the doxology and have an offertory prayer.
Communion: The prefilled communion cups with wafer will be handed out at the end of the service as attendees are leaving the church.
Singing: At this time, please avoid singing. Hum.
Water Fountain: The water fountains are turned off. If you think you will need a drink during the service, please bring a water bottle from home.
Dismissal: Upon completion of the service, ushers will dismiss the congregation by pews. If asked to exit out the west entrance, there is an entire flight of stairs. Please do not remain in the sanctuary and have conversations.
Before or after service: Please refrain from socializing before and after services indoors. You may converse in the parking lot. Please remember to socially distance.
This is a gentle reminder that you will be seated, and depending on how full the sanctuary is upon your arrival, the dining room may be where you will be attending church. Please be patient and extend some grace as we navigate these uncertain waters.
