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.

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
     that the Lord's Supper is available on an individual basis by contacting
     the pastor.

     household. Seating has been marked to provide for adquate social

     participating in congregational singing.  (We have also limited the
     amount of congregational singing as singing is known to involved 
     increased exhalation).

10. Holy Communion continues to be offered on the second, fourth, and fifth
     weeks of the month. 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.  As always, Holy 
     Communion is also available at other times by appointment. 
11.Avoid socializing in the narthex or hallway. This is something that can be
