In-Person Worship

Starting Sunday, July 5th, we were able to begin reopening our worship space for attendees with several safety precautions put in place due to the Covid-19 viral pandemic. Here is a list of some of the changes we are making at Emmanuel during this time: 

"Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence,
Lord."  -Psalm 89:15 (NLT)
We will resume in-person worship services Sunday July 5th.  On-line services will continue to be
available on Facebook Live for those who wish to avoid gatherings, especially anyone with a
preexisting medical condition and those over 65.
We will take the following reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Social Distancing.   Seating will be in every other pew.  Members should should space themselves
to maintain six feet between singles, couples and family groups.   It may take a few Sundays before
this becomes second nature.  But common sense will help everyone get settled in for service. 
And it would be helpful to fill the church front to back.  Those arriving early should locate in the front
pews first.  At the end of service, exit back to front. 
The parish hall will be set up for additional seating.  The balcony is available. 
We will not have coffee & refreshments between services.   All social gatherings should be outside
where there is more room.
Health and Hygiene.  The pew cushions will be removed.  The pews will be cleaned & sanitized after
each service.  Hand sanitizer will be available in the pews.  All members are asked to please wear a
face mask.  Face masks will be provided if you do not have your own. Wearing masks will help protect
ourselves, our family, our Christian family and the community. 
Individual communion service will be available.  These include a wrapped wafer & grape juice cup. 
Paper bulletins will not be handed out. All hymns, songs and responses will be up on the front screen.
An offering plate will not be passed. Offerings can be placed in the plate as you enter or exit. On-line
giving is also available on our home page where you can click "Give Online" in the upper right corner.
