Guidelines concerning coronavirus.
At our service:
Greeters will not be offering to shake hands. A friendly smile and acknowledgement greeting will continue to be given!
Please refrain from shaking hands during the sharing of the peace. The words alone or a nod can convey the message.
People experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, especially a fever, should stay home and avoid contact with others until symptoms cease.
Communion assistants will continue to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing items for communion and afterwards as well as the communion vessels.
Our pastor will bless the common cup. There will be no intinction of wafers (dipping into the wine). Communion wine will be offered to the congregation only in the individual cups at the moment.
(On leaving the altar, those receiving communion are asked to place their empty cup in one of the plastic-lined containers provided by the greeters.)
We will follow local health guidelines in our worship and meeting spaces with additional cleaning and disinfection of surfaces including door handles, railings, switches, etc.
Our Ladies’ Auxiliary will continue to prepare refreshments for Fellowship following the service, using disposable cups and plates (unless the water for the new dish washer is proven hot enough to sanitize our dishes).
(PS Since we will be generating more garbage, please put disposable cups one into the other and pile up used paper plates. Remember each city disposal service is offered every two weeks!)
