In-person worship at Reedville returns full time starting July, 11!
In light of our experience on June 20, the continued reduction in infection rates, and the lifting of the governor’s restrictions on June 30, the Worship Ministry Group has decided to return sanctuary worship full time starting on July 11. This is a change from the alternating Zoom/live plan that was developed in April. Many people indicated that this was their preference. However, we also heard from people who are wary of an “anything goes” attitude that violates boundaries. With both in mind, this is the plan for the rest of the summer:
Masks are voluntary. There will be no vaccination checks, RSVPs, or assigned seats. However, one pew on each side will be designated a “wide margins” pew, where it is understood that significant space will be observed between people not in the same household.
We will be singing from the hymnals, so bring them back if you have been using one in your home! If you prefer, you are welcome to take home your hymnal after each service so that you use the same one from week to week.
Offerings will continue to be collected in the plate at the back of the aisle rather than passed in the pews, and we will continue with a modified passing of the peace with your nearby pew neighbors.
No formal Fellowship Time is planned, but people are welcome to move from the sanctuary and chat in the hall after the service.
We look forward to seeing everyone!
