Our wardens have made the decision to return to in-person worship this Sunday August 1. Service will also be simulcast online via zoom.
This was not an easy decision to make and several factors were considered:
- We have a limited, small space for worship. There is no way to socially distance when we have more than 20 people in our space.
- We have not, and we will not determine who is vaccinated and who is not. We will not limit our worship and Holy Eucharist to people who have been vaccinated only.
- There is no way for us to determine who has been recently exposed to COVID-19.
We will continue to monitor the situation, the Guidelines from the Diocese of Newark, and we will adjust our worship plans accordingly.
In-Person Worship will resume Sunday August 1, with the following precautions:
- MASKS REQUIRED: Everyone is required to wear a mask to attend the service and at all times while indoors.
- NO PHYSICAL PASSING OF THE PEACE: No handshakes, no hugs, no fist or elbow bumps. Waving, peace signs, and smiles only.
- VENTILATION: All church windows and doors will be open and fans will be running. There will be no air conditioning.
- COFFEE HOUR: Coffee hour will be held in the yard, weather permitting.
If you have questions or concerns about this decision please talk with the Wardens, Hank Allen and Susan Jacobson.
