COVID-ERA COURTESIES AND PRACTICES
Just as we preach and teach by The Book (the Bible) for the sake of our spiritual health, we also want to conduct public worship "by the book," that is, employing recommendations of recognized sources for the sake of our physical health (https://welscongregationalservices.net/covid-19-for-such-a-time-as-this/ and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/faith-based.html). We want to make all worshipers feel comfortable and be able to focus on Christ, not Covid, in the Divine Service.

with the virus, please stayhome and make use of the online options
during that time.
3. If you are in a high risk category for the virus, and have been advised by
your physician to avoid public places and gatherings, we encourage you
to do so. Until you are able to resume in-person worship, we offer
options to help you remain connected to God's Word. Also, remember

some as you enter and exit.
8. Offering plates will not be passed during the service, but are located at
the entrance to the sanctuary. Online giving is also available on this

recommended by the CDC.
10. Holy Communion continues to be offered on the second, fourth, and fifth
weeks of the month, with some modifications. The Sacrament will be
prepared with mask and disposable gloves worn. The Sacrament will be
received in a modified "continuous distribution" with both the wafers
and wine in individual containers to be taken by the communicant. At this
time, the "common cup" will not be offered. Hand sanitizer will be
available for use before and after communing.
11.Avoid socializing in the narthex or hallway. This is something that can be
done more safely outside with adequate distancing.

We are resuming our regular Church Cleaning schedule. It is very important that our facilities are cleaned carefully each week. Please check the Cleaning Roster on the bulletin board for your scheduled date. You will also receive a"Cleaning Duties" print-out in the mail, outlining areas to be cleaned and products to be used. School Cleaning will resume for the week ending August 30. If you wish, you may use gloves and face-masks provided in the cleaning closet. Please note that special attention is to be paid to frequently touched surfaces such as door knobs/handles, light switches, faucets, sinks, toilets, and backs of pews. If you require a sub to clean for you, please notify Lorraine Goward. Thank you.
