June Outdoor Worship - 10:30 a.m.

The Worship Service – We will not be printing bulletins for the worship service.  Please feel free to dress casually for summer weather.  Please plan to bring your own Bible.  We will not have song sheets or hymnals.  The lyrics will be emailed prior to the worship service.  Please print out the lyrics or bring you’re your device with the lyrics on them.  Again, we will worship at 10:30 a.m.


Not Ready to Return – We understand that not everyone feels ready to return to in-person worship at this time.  That’s OK.  We understand and respect those feelings.  We don’t want anyone to feel pressured to return before they feel comfortable.  We will continue to provide online worship opportunities which will now be sent out on Sunday, rather than Saturday.


Health – If you or someone from your family is sick or has been sick in the past week, please stay home and enjoy the online worship experience.  If you are in an at risk category due to age or an existing health condition, we encourage you to use your best wisdom and discretion.  Again, we will continue to provide online worship for those unable to attend.


Weather – In the case of rain or inclement weather, we will not hold in-person worship.  We will provide an online worship experience.


Masks – We will not be requiring masks.  However, you are more than welcome to wear a mask.


Seating – Please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on.  Chairs will not be provided.  Please sit in family groups and maintain the recommended social distancing guidelines (6 feet apart).  For those who would prefer to remain in their vehicles during the worship service for health reasons or feeling uncomfortable walking on the church lawn, we are seeking to keep the parking spots in the southeast corner (3rd Ave & 8th Street) of the church lot available for those purposes.


Parking – We ask that you park in the lower parking lot or use the parking spots in the southwest corner, so we may keep the southeast corner spots available for those who desire to remain in their cars.


Church Building – The church building will remain closed while we are worshiping outside.  We will not be putting any materials in the church mailboxes.  If you desire one of the devotionals (Upper Room, Words of Hope, or Sunday School Guide), please let us know in advance and we will have one available to bring to you.


Restrooms – Since the church building will remain closed, please do not plan on using the restrooms at the church.  We will have someone available to open the church restroom in the case of an emergency.  However, the restrooms will be closed for all other use.


Offering – We will not pass the plate for offering.  There will be several stations available with boxes in which you may deposit your offering.
