ANNOUNCEMENTS:
COUNCIL PRESIDENT UPDATE With the recent announcements from the state and full reopening at the end of June (or sooner), the Council and Worship Committee have been meeting and discussing when to fully reopen the church and worship. Out of those discussions and in compliance with the guidelines and requirements, we have the come up with a phased approach. Going forward, in regards to wearing masks, that is to your discretion and following State and CDC guidelines are not required for those vaccinated. However, you are encouraged to do so as you feel comfortable. Hand sanitizer, nitrile gloves and masks will be available for use as needed.
Starting Sunday, June 6, we will begin using Lectors and also Coffee and Cookies following the service. Sign- up sheets will be available for volunteers to sign up and read or host. Sunday, June 27, we will have a congregational meeting to elect Council members and Endowment Committee members. Starting Sunday, July 4, we will resume full liturgical worship and schedule, have communion on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, and use the Service of the Word for the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. We will continue to record the Worship Services and be available on-line for those unable to attend the service in person. Offering will continue to be collected in the offering plate located at the back of the sanctuary. We will also resume having a greeter or greeters and the sign-up sheet to volunteer will be available. In regards to communion, we are looking into how serve communion, maintaining safety and sanitary
distribution. We know that the prepackaged communion packet is not the easiest to use or open, but is the most sanitary means of distribution. Intinction or individual cups are possibilities as well.
